Humble CLI

Give it a try now!

Mac OSx:

bash <(curl -s

Ubuntu Server:

bash <(wget -qO-

HumbleCLI is distributed as a GitHub repository of bash scripts that are linked to your /usr/local/bin folder to be globally available.

It is pretty much the same approach that Hombebrew had chosen, you can trust us :-)


humble update-cli




We are working hard on our inline documentation.
It's just like any other cli help support:

humble help [command]


docker-compose is so cool, uh? But you may want to provide your app with environment based settings and services for development, testing, production, etc.

Then you probably run commands like that:

// Development
MAIN_PORT=8080 API_KEY=testKey docker-compose -f docker-compose.yml -f docker-compose.development.yml up -d --build

// Production
MAIN_PORT=80 API_KEY=hdew79weydq7rsgf3455dfh docker-compose -f docker-compose.yml -f docker-compose.production.yml up -d --build

I don't know about you but I grew tired of those long commands which I used to store in my project's readme and copy/paste to my terminal. It just doesn't work well.

docker-compose already fetches environment variables from a .env file in the project's CWD, so why don't make .env more useful and extensible?

// .env
// Project's root folder:
- .env
- docker-compose.yml
- docker-compose.development.yml
- docker-compose.production.yml
- /services
// Start up my project
humble up -d

humble reads through your .env file and figures out which info to give to docker-compose on your behalf. That's just about it!

  • your boot command is part of your codebase
  • you can easily setup different environments
  • every tiny bit of configuration is environment driven so you can keep your source-code and production settings apart from each other
You can’t perform that action at this time.
