The Inngest CLI allows you to build and test event-driven serverless functions locally on your own machine. Using this CLI, you can:

  • Scaffold new serverless functions in seconds
  • Run functions with test data for fast development
  • Test functions with live, historical data
  • Deploy functions instantly

The Inngest CLI source code is available on GitHub.

How to install

curl -sfL | sh && \ sudo mv ./inngest /usr/local/bin/inngest

Alternatively, you can:

  1. Download the latest pre-built binary from our releases page here.
  2. Build the CLI from source, as long as you have Go installed.


Docker is a required dependency for the CLI in order to build, run, and deploy your functions. You can find more information on installing Docker on your system here:
