Flotiq CLI


We've prepared Flotiq CLI (command-line interface) to help launch and manage Flotiq projects more efficiently using Flotiq's blazing-fast API.

It allows for many actions for your Flotiq account management, like automatically starting one of our Gatsby or NextJs starters, importing data from a third-party service or programs like excel or WordPress and much more.



You need node version 9 or higher to install and use Flotiq CLI.

To install Flotiq CLI globally use the following command in the terminal of your choosing:

npm install -g flotiq-cli


Flotiq CLI currently supports the following commands:

  • flotiq start quickly launches one of our NextJs or Gatsby starters. (more on flotiq start for Gatsby and Next.js)

  • flotiq import imports example data for your NextJs or Gatsby starter. (more on flotiq import for Gatsby and Next.js)

  • flotiq export exports data from the Flotiq account to local JSON files. If the key is limited to selected Content Types, then the data available for this key will be exported.
