Nexmo CLI

Contributor Covenant npm version Build Status Known Vulnerabilities codecov

Nexmo is now known as Vonage

Installation | Usage | Contributing | License

Installation

The Nexmo CLI requires Node.js 4 or above. If you don't have Node.js installed on your system, go to https://nodejs.org/en/download/ and download the appropriate installer for your system.

With Node.js installed, you can then install the nexmo-cli package from the npm registry.

npm install nexmo-cli -g   # Using npm
yarn global add nexmo-cli  # Using yarn

If you see an EACCES error when you try to install a package globally, follow the steps outlined at How to Prevent Permissions Errors.

After installation, set up the CLI with your Nexmo API key and secret:

> nexmo setup <api_key> <api_secret>
Credentials written to /Users/yourname/.nexmorc

This will save your credentials to ~/.nexmorc. If you want to use different credentials per project, you can pass the --local flag as follows:

> nexmo setup <api_key> <api_secret> --local

This will save the config to your local folder instead.
