Deis Workflow Client CLI

The Deis command-line interface (CLI), lets you interact with Deis Workflow. Use the CLI to create and configure and manage applications.

Install the latest deis client for Linux or Mac OS X with:

$ curl -sSL | bash -s stable

The installer places the deis binary in your current directory, but you should move it somewhere in your $PATH:

$ sudo ln -fs $PWD/deis /usr/local/bin/deis


$ sudo mv $PWD/deis /usr/local/bin/deis

Check your work by running deis version:

$ deis version


Note that version numbers may vary as new releases become available
