CLI Plugins

twilio-cli can be extended through plugins. You can publish your own plugins for the community or make them private for your own — or your clients’ — business workflows.

Install a plugin

Plugins for twilio-cli are installed using the twilio plugins command.

  1. Install a plugin by its package name:

    twilio plugins:install <plugin-package-name>
  2. Run your plugin commands from twilio-cli. Refer to the plugin’s documentation to see what new commands are available.

  3. If you’re using autocomplete, you’ll need to run twilio autocomplete after installing a plugin and then open a new terminal window. twilio-cli needs to rebuild its cache.
