The Heroku CLI is used to manage Heroku apps from the command line. It is built using oclif.

To get started see


This is the next generation Node-based Heroku CLI. The goals of this project were to make plugins more flexible, remove Ruby as a runtime dependency, and make the CLI faster.

It has identical functionality to the old Ruby CLI. Under the hood, it is a modular CLI made up of node.js plugins.

For more on developing plugins, read Developing CLI Plugins


For problems directly related to the CLI, add an issue on GitHub.

For other issues, submit a support ticket.


Command Topics


This project is built with lerna. The core plugins are located in ./packages. Run lerna bootstrap after cloning the repository to set it up.

The standard oclif ./bin/run script serves as your entry point to the CLI in your local development environment.
