node package manager


Hey, You


npm i -g hey-you

If installation fails with an EACCES error on a Mac, try [sudo] npm install -g electron-prebuilt --unsafe-perm=true --allow-root and then try installing again.


  • CLI:

    • hey-cli, or
    • hey-you-cli, or
    • heyyou-cli
  • Electron app:

    • hey, or
    • hey-you, or
    • heyyou

You can either click or press any keys, or both if you want.

Alt-F4 or Cmd-Q to quit. Or just don't close it.

You can do hey & to just leave it open.

If this doesn't work for you, you may need to update Node. (On Linux or Mac, try npm i -g n && n latest).

If it still doesn't work, please open an issue and I'll try to fix it ASAP!


  • 1.0.0 add CLI, remove cheer-me-up and imreallysadrightnow.

hey, you...

you rule.
