Download packages from releases.hashicorp.com

js-releases is a handy tool for downloading and verifying packages from releases.hashicorp.com. You can:

  • fetch metadata for a given release (or latest)
  • download the package
  • verify the SHASUM and signature
  • unpack to a specified directory


import { Release, getRelease } from '@hashicorp/js-releases';

// Setting a user agent string is optional but helpful!
const userAgent = `Example-Program/1.0.0 js-releases/dev`;

// Download metadata for a release using a semver range or "latest"
// "latest" is set by default if no range is included
const release = await getRelease("terraform-ls", "latest", userAgent);

// Include pre-releases in the semver range
const preRelease = await getRelease("terraform-ls", "^1.0.pre-0", userAgent, true);

// Select metadata for a build matching a given OS and arch
const build = release.getBuild(os, arch);

// Download the release to an install path
const installPath = "/hc_product/downloads"
await release.download(build.url, installPath, userAgent);

// Verify the release shasum and signature
await release.verify(installPath, build.filename);

// Unpack the release from the install path to a destination
const destination = "/usr/local/bin"
return release.unpack(installPath, destination)

Validating releases

Packages are verified using HashiCorp's public GPG key 72D7468F. The previous key was rotated and revoked per HCSEC-2021-12 on 4/22/21. As a result, earlier versions of js-releases will no longer be able to verify packages.
