Use the Railway CLI to connect your code to your projects infrastructure without needing to worry about environment variables or configuration.
Login to your Railway account. Opens a browser tab which authenticates into an existing Railway session.
If there are any issues with Browser based login you can use the
--browserless flag to authenticate.
Project Token Authentication
You can use Project tokens to authenticate in environments that prevent you to authenticate with browsers such as CI environments.
Project tokens allow the CLI to access all the environment variables associated
with a specific project and environment. Use the token by setting the
RAILWAY_TOKEN environment variable and then running
Link to a Project
Link to an existing Project under your Railway account or team.
Create a Project
Create a new project directly from the command line.
Run code inside your Railway environment. We connect your code to your infrastructure hosted on Railway by injecting environment variables.
For example, to run your node project with Railway:
If you have a Dockerfile in your project directory, you can just run
railway run with no arguments to build and run the Dockerfile.
Projects might have multiple environments, by default the CLI points to the
production environment. If you'd like to use a different set of environment variables and a different deployment environment you can change the setting by:
Deploy current directory to Railway. Displays deployment logs from the project deploys.
Provision a plugin for a project.
Connect to Plugin
Open an interactive shell to a database directly in the CLI.
