node package manager


OpenWhisk Activation Browser


  1. npm install -g wab
  2. wab

You are expected to have working OpenWhisk credentials. In particular, the file ~/.wskprops should exist and be complete.

If you can run wsk activation list without issue you are probably all set.

Note that wab requires Node 6 or later.


wab uses Vim bindings for most operations. The following may be useful:

  • k/j moves up/down
  • CTRL+U/CTRL+D page up/page down
  • When viewing an activation, r toggles the "result only" view, and l toggles the "log only" view
  • q closes the activation pane, or the program
  • CTRL+R forces a refresh of the activation list
