    Overwolf CLI


    The Overwolf CLI is a tool to help you manage your Overwolf Applications. It's currently in early development, and we'll be adding more and more features over time.


    $ npm i -g @overwolf/ow-cli


    The CLI can be used from a terminal or from a node.js script.


    The CLI is comprised of commands divided into categories, or commands and sub-commands, if you will.

    As of right now, we have 5 commands available:

    • config: Configures the CLI. You will be prompted to enter your email (that you use to login to the Dev Console) and your API key (see below). Deprecates the dev config command.
    • opk pack: Packs a folder into an OPK file.
    • opk sign: Signs an OPK. The app this OPK belongs to has to exist in the Dev Console and you must have permissions for it. Deprecates the dev sign-opk command.
    • opk upload Uploads an OPK file to the Dev Console. The OPK must be valid, the app this OPK belongs to has to exist in the Dev Console, and you must have permissions for it. You can also upload to a test channel.
    • client calc-uid: Calculates an app's UID using its name and author.

    You can always run the "help" command, ow help, for a list of all available commands.

    Also, if you're using a linux-based terminal (e.g git bash), you could use autocomplete with <tab><tab>. You might have to restart your terminal for the autocomplete to take effect.

    From a Node.JS Script

    If you install @overwolf/ow-cli as a dependency in your node.js app. At your application's entry point, make sure you have the following lines:

    import 'reflect-metadata';
    import { OwCliContainer } from '@overwolf/ow-cli/bin';

    All of the available commands and their arguments can be found in '@overwolf/ow-cli/bin' as well. To get a command, use the OwCliContainer:

    const signOpkCmd = OwCliContainer.resolve(SignOpkCommand);

    Then, call the command's handler method:

    signOpkCmd.handler({ ... });

    API Key

    You can obtain your API key from the Dev Console. In the side navigation, go to Settings => Profile, and there you'll see an option to revoke and regenerate your API key.

    Pay attention! Revoking your API key means that the previous key will stop working immediately. Similar to a password, we could never recover your API key for you. With great power, comes great responsibility.


    Some actions in the CLI (signing and uploading, for now) require you to provide credentials. Your credentials are the email you use to sign in to the Dev Console, and your API key.

    There are 2 ways to provide your credentials:

    • The config command. As mentioned above, running ow config (instead of the deprecated ow dev config) will prompt you for your email and API key and store them locally in your user's root folder.
    • Environment variables. Whenever you run a command, you can specify OW_CLI_EMAIL and OW_CLI_API_KEY using your operating system's syntax. Using this method will not store the credentials on your machine.
