Cordova Coho

Command line tool for Apache Cordova contributors to manage Apache Cordova repositories, and to help with releases and pull requests.

This repository has the following purposes:

  1. To hold committer-relevant documentation
  2. To hold release automation scripts
    • e.g. coho create-archive && coho verify-archive
  3. To hold generally useful dev scripts
    • e.g. coho repo-clone
    • e.g. coho --help

Node.js is a pre-requisite:

Easiest way on OS X & Linux:

Easiest way on Windows:


Via npm

npm install -g cordova-coho

On Mac OS X / Linux, if you didn't use a node version manager like nvm or n, you might have to run the command using sudo.

Alternately, you could also clone & use coho

mkdir -p cordova
cd cordova
git clone
cd cordova-coho
npm install
npm link # Might need sudo for some configurations 

Cloning/Updating Cordova repositories

coho repo-update -g -r all

repo-update will clone a repo if it is missing -- if it exists, it updates it.

The all repo id will clone all Apache Cordova repositories into the current working directory.


coho --help

or if you know the command:

coho [command] --help   

For example:

coho repo-clone --help

To see valid repo ids and repo group ids for use with Coho, use the list-repos command:

coho list-repos    

Note about global context

Note that for some commands you may need to use the -g or --global flag to work in an npm global context, since coho was originally designed for use in another context.


Cordova is an open source Apache project and contributors are needed to keep this project moving forward. Learn more on how to contribute on our website.


If you find issues with this tool, please follow our guidelines for reporting issues. We do not use the GitHub issue system as an Apache project, we have a JIRA issue management system which covers over 50+ CLI, platform, and plugin repos in the Cordova project. Use the "cordova-coho" component for Cordova Coho issues.
