The Neon Command-Line Tool

Build Status npm

Automatically create and build Neon modules.


Getting started

Install neon-cli as a global package:

npm install -g neon-cli

To create a new Neon project, use neon new:

neon new my-project

This will ask you a few questions and then generate a project skeleton for you. Follow the instructions from there to build and run your project!


See the Neon README.


neon new

Creates a new Neon project skeleton.

neon new <name> [--rust|-r <toolchain>]

The name is the project name and the name of the subdirectory of the current working directory that will be created.

The optional --rust parameter allows specifying a custom toolchain (stable or nightly) to use for building the project with multirust instead of the system default Rust installation.

Get Involved
