Flex Plugins CLI

BETA

This Twilio product is currently available as a beta release. Some features are not yet implemented and others may be changed before the product is declared as Generally Available. Beta products are not covered by a Twilio SLA. Learn more about beta product support.

The Flex Plugins CLI (Command Line Interface) is the interface for developing, testing, and releasing plugins. It accelerates your plugin development by automating the key workflows you'll use while customizing Flex for your users. All plugins developed using the Plugins CLI can be managed on the Plugins Dashboard.

CLI Features

Build new plugins

The Flex Plugins CLI enables you to create new plugins in JavaScript or TypeScript. You can start with a blank slate, or create a plugin from a pre-existing template with the --template parameter. You can manage packages either via NPM or Yarn (Supported in Flex UI versions 1.19 and up).

Deploy and release plugin versions

The Flex Plugins CLI is built on the Plugins API. You can define plugin versions to track incremental updates to your customer experience. Deploy updates for each of your plugins individually, or bundle all of your updates together in a single release.

Manage your version and release history

All of the updates to your plugin versions are tracked as a history of releases. Use this history to quickly identify and track changes in your application, and select a prior configuration to re-release in the event of an issue with your users.
