Install the Hasura CLI

Install the Hasura CLI binary globally

The recommended installation method of the Hasura CLI is to install it as a global binary. You can download it by following the instructions for your operating system:

In your Linux shell, run the following command:

curl -L https://github.com/hasura/graphql-engine/raw/stable/cli/get.sh | bash

This will install the Hasura CLI in /usr/local/bin. You might have to provide your sudo password depending on the permissions of your /usr/local/bin location.

If you'd prefer to install to a different location other than /usr/local/bin, set the INSTALL_PATH variable accordingly:

curl -L https://github.com/hasura/graphql-engine/raw/stable/cli/get.sh | INSTALL_PATH=$HOME/bin bash

You can also install a specific version of the CLI by providing the VERSION variable:

curl -L https://github.com/hasura/graphql-engine/raw/stable/cli/get.sh | VERSION=v2.2.0 bash
Tip: Add shell completion

To add command auto-completion in your shell, refer to the hasura completion command.

Install through npm

The Hasura CLI is available as an npm package which wraps the compiled binary and is independently maintained by members of the community. Hasura does not offer maintenance or support for this package.
