To begin using Accio, you first need to install the Accio CLI. The Accio CLI is a command-line tool that assists in initializing a Accio project, building your own Accio MDL.

Install From Binary

We provide pre-built binaries for Linux, macOS, and Windows. The binary includes all dependencies, so you don't need to install any additional dependencies.

Let's go ahead and grab the newest version of Accio CLI from this link: accio-cli. Once the download is complete, you'll need to extract the file and move it to /usr/local/bin:

tar zxvf accio.osx.tar.gz
mv accio /usr/local/bin

Install from NPM (not yet)

Preparing the installation

Please ensure the following environment is set up before starting the manual installation:

  • Verify Node.js version 16 or higher with node --version. If not installed or lower version, visit to install.
  • Your preferred Node.js package manager: NPM or Yarn

NPM Install

npm i -g @accio/cli

Manual Install


  1. Clone the repository:

    git clone
  2. Change to the project directory:

    cd accio-cli
  3. Install dependencies:

    yarn install
  4. Choose the appropriate installation method based on your preference:

    a. Docker Build:

    docker build --output=outdir --target binaries .

    b. Host Environment Build:

    yarn nx run cli:pkg:development
  5. Choose the appropriate executable for your platform. For example, if you are using Linux, execute the following command to move the executable to /usr/bin/accio:

    mv ./outdir/cli-linux /usr/bin/accio

Remember to adjust the instructions based on your platform (e.g., macOS, Windows) and specify the desired location for the executable file.
