DC/OS Command Line Interface Build Status

The DC/OS Command Line Interface (CLI) is a cross-platform command line utility that provides a user-friendly yet powerful way to manage DC/OS clusters.

Installation and usage

If you're a user of DC/OS, please follow the installation instructions. Otherwise, follow the instructions below to set up your development environment.

Detailed help and usage information is available through the dcos help command and for specific subcommands through dcos <subcommand> --help.

Additional documentation for the CLI and for the DC/OS in general is available in the DC/OS docs.

Development setup


  1. git must be installed to download the source code for the DC/OS CLI.
  2. go 1.12+ or Docker.
  3. win-bash must be installed if you are using Windows in order to run setup scripts from the Makefile.


  1. Clone git repo for the dcos cli:

    git clone
  2. Change directory to the repo directory:

    cd dcos-cli
  3. Build the binary (using Docker):


    or Using Go (1.12+):

export DCOS_TEST_DEFAULT_CLUSTER_PASSWORD=<password to access the cluster>
export DCOS_TEST_DEFAULT_CLUSTER_HOST=<IP or domain of the cluster>
cd tests
pip install -r requirements.txt
pytest integration
