Command Line - Get Started

Skyflow Command Line is an environment manager for your projects.

It provides a Docker manager for all your environments, with pre-configured packages, docker-compose management and commands to run and stop your containers. You will no longer search for docker-compose templates on the internet, you will directly add the technologies you need in one command, answer configuration questions and start working on your projects.


Skyflow is a Docker based project. Its use requires the installation of Docker. Skyflow Command Line is created with the Nodejs language. To use this command line without docker, you will need to install Nodejs. Node.js version 6.0.0 or higher is required. Version 8.0.0 or higher is recommended.

How to use Skyflow

There are two ways to use Skyflow. You can use the command line or the web application. The choice of each method depends on your need.

If you need to versify or perform complex actions on your environment, it is recommended to use the command line. If you think your environment will not change throughout your project, it is best to use the composes or packages via the web application.
