Before we can get started using the Twilio Serverless Toolkit, we need to install it.
There are two ways you can use the toolkit. If you are already using the Twilio CLI, you can install it via a plugin. Alternatively, you can use the toolkit as a standalone using
twilio-run via npm or another Node.js package manager.
Throughout the docs, you'll find all instructions using the Twilio CLI.
If you and the people who work with you on the project have the Twilio CLI installed, your best bet will be to use the plugin. If you intend to install the toolkit as a dependency directly to your project, you can alternatively install
twilio-run as a
devDependency in your Node.js project.
To get started, you'll have to install the Twilio Serverless Toolkit using the Twilio CLI
_10# Install the Serverless plugin_10twilio plugins:install @twilio-labs/plugin-serverless_10_10# See a list of available commands:_10twilio serverless --help
You can update Twilio CLI plugins by running
twilio plugins:update, but this might not pull the very latest version. Instead, uninstall and re-install the plugin.
_10# Uninstall the existing Serverless Toolkit_10twilio plugins:remove @twilio-labs/plugin-serverless_10_10# Install the latest version of the Serverless Toolkit_10twilio plugins:install @twilio-labs/plugin-serverless@latest
You can find all available commands using the
--help flag on the toolkit or a specific command.

Now that we have the toolkit installed let's see what we can do with it.
