Scaleway CLI (v2)

Scaleway CLI is a tool to help you pilot your Scaleway infrastructure directly from your terminal.


With a Package Manager (Recommended)

A package manager installs and upgrades the Scaleway CLI with a single command. We recommend this installation mode for more simplicity and reliability:


Install the latest stable release on macOS using Homebrew:

brew install scw

Arch Linux

Install the latest stable release on Arch Linux from official repositories. For instance with pacman:

pacman -S scaleway-cli


Install the latest stable release on Windows using Chocolatey (Package):

choco install scaleway-cli


Released Binaries

We provide static-compiled binaries for darwin (macOS), GNU/Linux, and Windows platforms. You just have to download the binary compatible with your platform to a directory available in your PATH:


# Check out the latest release available on github <https://github.com/scaleway/scaleway-cli/releases/latest>

# Download the release from github
sudo curl -o /usr/local/bin/scw -L "https://github.com/scaleway/scaleway-cli/releases/download/v${VERSION}/scaleway-cli_${VERSION}_linux_amd64"
# Naming changed lately, the url prior to 2.5.4 was https://github.com/scaleway/scaleway-cli/releases/download/v${VERSION}/scw-${VERSION}-linux-x86_64

# Allow executing file as program
sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/scw

# Init the CLI
scw init


You can download the last release here: https://github.com/scaleway/scaleway-cli/releases This official guide explains how to add tools to your PATH.

Getting Started

Setup your configuration

After you installed the latest release just run the initialization command and let yourself be guided! :dancer:

scw init

It will set up your profile, the authentication, and the auto-completion.

Basic commands

# Create an instance server
scw instance server create type=DEV1-S image=ubuntu_focal zone=fr-par-1 tags.0="scw-cli"

# List your servers
scw instance server list

# Create a Kubernetes cluster named foo with cilium as CNI, in version 1.17.4 and with a pool named default composed of 3 DEV1-M and with 2 tags
scw k8s cluster create name=foo version=1.17.4 pools.0.size=3 pools.0.node-type=DEV1-M pools.0.name=default tags.0=tag1 tags.1=tag2

Build it yourself

Build Locally

If you have a >= Go 1.13 environment, you can install the HEAD version to test the latest features or to [contribute](./.github/CONTRIBUTING.md). Note that this development version could include bugs, use tagged releases if you need stability.

go install github.com/scaleway/scaleway-cli/v2/cmd/scw@latest

Dependencies: We only use go Go Modules with vendoring.

Build with Docker

You can build the scw CLI with Docker. If you have Docker installed, you can run:

docker build -t scaleway/cli .

Once build, you can then use the CLI as you would run any image:

docker run -i --rm scaleway/cli

See more in-depth information about running the CLI in Docker [here](./docs/docker.md)


This repository is at its early stage and is still in active development. If you are looking for a way to contribute please read [CONTRIBUTING.md](./.github/CONTRIBUTING.md).

Legacy version
