Arweave Deploy that saves you data costs.


  • No file size limit.
  • No amount of files limit.
  • Doesn't upload files that you have already uploaded.

How to use

arkb runs using NodeJS and NPM. You must have both installed on your machine for it to work.

Install arkb:

yarn global add arkb # recommended


npm install -g arkb

Note: The installation of arkb needs node >=15.11.0 or you will get an error when using arkb. To manage multiple active nodejs, we recommend you have nvm installed on your computer, then you can switch different node in a simple command.

And run:

arkb help

Note: If you are planning to upload large batches of data transactions to the Arweave network, it is strongly advised that you use the --use-bundler option instead of regular deploy to avoid transaction failures. You can read about bundles and their advantages on the Arwiki.
