    Netlify CLI requires Node.js version 14 or above. To install, run the following command from any directory in your terminal:

    npm install netlify-cli -g

    When using the CLI in a CI environment we recommend installing it locally as a development dependency, instead of globally. To install locally, run the following command from the root directory of your project:

    npm install --save-dev netlify-cli

    Important: Running npm install netlify-cli -g in CI means you're always installing the latest version of the CLI, including breaking changes. When you install locally and use a lock file you guarantee reproducible builds. To manage CLI updates we recommend using an automated tool like renovate or dependabot.

    Alternatively you may also use Homebrew: brew install netlify-cli (thanks @cglong).


    Installing the CLI globally provides access to the netlify command.

    netlify [command]
    # Run `help` for detailed information about CLI commands
    netlify [command] help


    To learn how to log in to Netlify and start deploying sites, visit the documentation on Netlify.
