CLI for the atlassian-connect-express library (helpers for building Atlassian Add-ons on top of Express)


A simple CLI for the atlassian-connect-express library. In short, atlas-connect makes it easy to create Atlassian Connect based Add-ons.

You can install me with:

npm i -g atlas-connect

atlas-connect doesn't attempt to do too much. Mainly, it's a helper tool for creating a add-on project scaffold.

Usage: atlas-connect [-h|--help] <command> [<args>]

The most commonly used atlas-connect commands are:
    keygen      Generate public and private RSA keys
    new         Generate a new Atlassian Connect Add-on scaffold

  -h, --help     Show usage
  -v, --version  Show version

The atlas-connect simplifies the process of building an Atlassian Add-on using the Express framework through:

  • A project scaffold generator with great default settings
  • An OAuth public/private key pair generation

On top of that, the generated scaffold bundles the atlassian-connect-express package which greatly simplifies the process of creating remote add-ons.

The atlassian-connect-express tools are currently experimental. With that said, feel free to report issues. If you want to learn more about Atlassian Connect, you can visit
