# Runtime

The Codotype Runtime is responsible for all filesystem reading and writing - if the generator is the dehydrated precursor, the runtime is what adds water. The Runtime implements a series of methods that are passed down to each generator, thus fully decoupling the generator from the environment in which it's being run. This separation allows generators to be run on a server or from the commandline - you can see the @codotype/cli repository to see how the runtime registers and runs generators.
