🏗 Installation

$ npm install -g getstream-cli

🚀 Getting Started

In order to initialize the CLI, it's as simple as:


Note: Your API key and secret can be found on the Stream Dashboard and is specific to your organization.

🔨 Syntax

Basic commands use the following syntax:

$ stream command:COMMAND --arg1 "foo" --arg2 "bar"

Whereas commands for specific products use subcommands:

$ stream command:COMMAND:SUBCOMMAND --arg1 "foo" --arg2 "bar"

🎩 Fun Facts

Interested in using the calling the CLI from a script? Or maybe you simply want raw response data? You can do that! Many of the commands accept a json argument as a boolean. Just pass the following along to the CLI and you'll get back a full representation of the response (in a raw data format):

$ stream command:COMMAND --arg1 "foo" --arg2 "bar" --json

Need to copy the output to your clipboard? Not a problem. Just pipe the information to pbcopy (on macOS) along with the --json flag:

$ stream debug:token --token "" --json | pbcopy

Want to call the Stream CLI using a bash command? No problem! Make sense of output using jq, a lightweight and flexible command-line JSON processor.

#! /bin/bash

run=$(stream config:get --json)

name=$(jq --raw-output '.name' <<< "${run}")
email=$(jq --raw-output '.email' <<< "${run}")
apiKey=$(jq --raw-output '.apiKey' <<< "${run}")
apiSecret=$(jq --raw-output '.apiSecret' <<< "${run}")

echo $name
echo $email
echo $apiKey
echo $apiSecret


#! /bin/bash

stream chat:channel:create --channel=$(openssl rand -hex 12) --type="messaging" --name="CLI" --json | jq '.'

Note: See here for additional examples!
