Twilio CLI Plugins

The 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 the 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 the 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. The CLI needs to re-build its cache.

Available plugins

  • twilio serverless — Use this to streamline your Twilio Functions development workflow.

    twilio plugins:install @twilio-labs/plugin-serverless
  • twilio watch — Allows you to watch your live debugger alerts, voice calls, and messages as they come in, in real time.

    twilio plugins:install @twilio-labs/plugin-watch
  • twilio token — Install and use this plugin to generate a token for use in a client-side SDK, e.g., a chat application.

    twilio plugins:install @twilio-labs/plugin-token
