Plow CLI setup
Installing Rust toolchain
To install the Plow CLI, currently an installation of a recent version of the Rust language toolchain (opens in a new tab) is required.
To provide an easier setup process that doesn't require installing the Rust toolchain, we are working on providing pre-built binaries of the CLI (opens in a new tab).
Installing the Plow CLI binary
To install the Plow CLI via cargo, you can run in a terminal:
cargo install plow_cli
After the installation is finished, you can verify that the binary is available via:
Login to public registry
In order to take certain actions with the Plow CLI (e.g. publishing a package) or to have access to private packages that have been shared with your Plow registry account, you have to authenticate your installation of the CLI.
- Log in (or create an account) under registry.field33.com (opens in a new tab)
- In your account settings create a new User Token, and copy it to your clipboard
- In a terminal run (substituting
[USER_TOKEN]with the token from your clipboard):Shell
plow login [USER_TOKEN]
