Getting Started


Install Cinnabar Forge Jordan globally using npm:

npm install -g jordan-backup

This will make the jordan command available in your terminal.


To start using Jordan, you need to specify a working folder in two ways:

  • with folder command. It will set the specified folder as the main one.
jordan folder <path_to_your_folder>
  • with the -f or --folder option. The specified folder will be used for this time only.
jordan -f <path_to_your_folder>


Before we can use other commands, we should init folder.

jordan init

It will create jordan.json file, which declares folder as Jordan Backup's one.

Adding a Configuration

To add a new configuration or update an existing one:

jordan add <configName> [path]

If path is omitted, the config will be considered 'cached' and will ignore backup and restore commands.

Removing a Configuration

To remove an existing configuration:

jordan remove <configName>

Listing All Configurations

To list all registered configurations:

jordan list


jordan ls

Backing Up and Restoring

To back up a configuration:

jordan backup <configName>

To back up all configurations:

jordan backup-all

To restore a configuration:

jordan restore <configName>

To restore all configurations:

jordan restore-all

For more specific operations or additional commands, use jordan --help or -h to see all available options.
