The Coder CLI is automatically injected and authenticated inside of all Coder Environments.
The CLI is also useful for use on your local machine. Before you can use the CLI locally, you'll need to download, install, and authenticate with Coder.

brew install cdr/coder/coder-cli
Download releases from GitHub:
coderbinary and copy it to a location you've added to your
Once you've installed the CLI, authenticate the client with your Coder account.
coder login [https://coder.domain.com]
If you're logged into Coder via your web browser, the process proceeds automatically; otherwise, you'll be asked to provide your username and password.
To support cases where the browser-based authentication flow isn't appropriate,
such as in CI/CD pipelines, the Coder CLI can also be authenticated with the
CODER_URL environment variables.
Generate a static authentication token with the following command:
coder tokens create my-token
