Cloudinary CLI

A lightweight get, upload, and delete, Cloudinary CLI.


npm i cloudinary-cli -g

Add Cloudinary Configuration

Edit the Cloudinary CLI configuration file .cloudinarycli.json found in your home directory. You'll need to set your cloud name, api key, and secret key. These values can be found in your Cloudinary dashboard.

Alternatively, you can set these variables with the CLI:

cloudinary-cli config:set cloudName=my-cloud-name

To view your current configuration variables run:

cloudinary-cli config


Get a single image by name

cloudinary-cli get sample

Get a folder/prefix/resource by name

// To get all images in your /scenery folder
cloudinary-cli get scenery -r


Upload an image into a specific folder

// Upload mountain.jpg from current directory into /scenery
cloudinary-cli upload mountain.jpg -n sierra-mountains -f scenery


Note: This is a dangerous operation, make sure not to delete an entire folder unless it's an auto-upload folder (or unless you really don't need the images anymore). For remotely fetched images deleting and invalidating an entire folder will simply invalidate the cache (really useful) and the images will be re-fetched by Cloudinary from their remote resource the next time they are requested.

// Delete a single image named sample and invalidate the cache
cloudinary-cli delete sample -i

// Delete an entire folder named thumbs and invalidate all of them.
cloudinary-cli delete thumbs -r -i


To invalidate an images cache on deletion pass the -i option.
