The Knative client

is your door to the Knative world. It allows you to create Knative resources interactively from the command line or from within scripts.

offers you:
  • Full support for managing all features of Knative Serving (services, revisions, traffic splits)
  • Growing support for Knative eventing, closely following its development (managing of sources & triggers)
  • A plugin architecture similar to that of
  • A thin client-specific API in golang which helps with tasks like synchronously waiting on Knative service write operations.
  • An easy integration of Knative into Tekton Pipelines by using
    in a Tekton

This client uses the Knative Serving and Knative Eventing APIs exclusively so that it will work with any Knative installation, even those that are not Kubernetes based. It does not help with installing Knative itself though. Please refer to the various Knative installation options for how to install Knative with its prerequisites.


Start with the user's guide to learn more. You can read about common use cases, get detailed documentation on each command, and learn how to extend the

CLI. For more information, have a look at:
  • User guide
    • Installation - How to install
      and run on your machine
    • Examples - Use case based examples
    • FAQ (to come.)
  • Reference Manual - all possible commands and options with usage examples
