Set up the Section CLI tool

Download and install sectionctl


Download and install the .deb package, or find the latest release for your distribution.


Download and run the installer.


Install the package from Homebrew

brew tap section/brews

brew install sectionctl

For other operating systems or processors: download the latest release of sectionctl for your platform.

Configure authentication

To set up credentials so the CLI tool works, run:

sectionctl login

This will prompt you for your Section API token, and securely store them where sectionctl can find them. To provision an API token, see these docs.

The Section CLI is now configured and ready to use

Next: set up an example Node.js app.

Node.js Edge App Hosting is a new Section product, so it may have some rough edges. If you see something that needs improvement, we’d love to hear your feedback.
