Learn about the plugin-info

Salesforce CLI plugins are based on the oclif plugin framework. Read the plugin developer guide to learn about Salesforce CLI plugin development.

This repository contains a lot of additional scripts and tools to help with general Salesforce node development and enforce coding standards. You should familiarize yourself with some of the node developer packages used by Salesforce. There is also a default circleci config using the release management orb standards.

Additionally, there are some additional tests that the Salesforce CLI will enforce if this plugin is ever bundled with the CLI. These test are included by default under the posttest script and it is recommended to keep these tests active in your plugin, regardless if you plan to have it bundled.

This plugin is bundled with the Salesforce CLI. For more information on the CLI, read the getting started guide.

We always recommend using the latest version of these commands bundled with the CLI, however, you can install a specific version or tag if needed.

To build the plugin locally, make sure to have yarn installed and run the following commands:

# Clone the repository
git clone git@github.com:salesforcecli/plugin-info

To use your plugin, run using the local ./bin/run or ./bin/run.cmd file.

There should be no differences when running via the Salesforce CLI or using the local run file. However, it can be useful to link the plugin to do some additional testing or run your commands from anywhere on your machine.

# Link your plugin to the sfdx cli
