Build Status codecov npm version

The CLI is the officially supported way to create and maintain Dojo 2 apps.

WARNING This is alpha software. It is not yet production ready, so you should use at your own risk.

It is designed to save you time, by promoting a standardised workflow, and automating away more mundane boilerplate tasks.


You will need node v6+.


Getting the cli

You can install from npm:

npm i dojo-cli -g

In a terminal, run:


This should output the following:

dojo help

Usage: dojo <command> [subCommand] [options]

Hey there, here are all the things you can do with dojo-cli:

If you don't see the message above, then check that you have installed the CLI with the -g option.

You can list all your global npm dependencies by running:

npm list -g –depth=0

If you don't see dojo-cli in the list of global dependencies, then please re-install and make sure the installation runs without errors.

How to use

The basic groups and commands

The CLI has the following format:

dojo group [command] - where [command] is optional


dojo build

where build is the group, and no command is specified, so the default build command is run. The above will output generic help information.

dojo build custombuild

where build is the group and custombuild is an installed command.

The CLI has the following in-built options:

dojo -h, --help - provides a list of help as detailed above.

The CLI has the following in-built groups:

dojo version - provides information on the versions of installed commands and the cli itself.
