Now Desktop

Our desktop application is the easiest way to get started with Now

Now Desktop comes with Now CLI (our command line interface) and
lets you oversee your team's activity or deploy any kind of project
right from the tray menu.

Drag and Drop Anything

Node.js or Docker apps, static websites or even just files. It doesn't matter!

The Upload Begins Instantly

Each deployment receives a new, unique URL and server.

The Deployment Is Ready

You'll be forwarded to the address of your working deployment.

Automatic Updates

Now Desktop will ensure that Now CLI (our command line interface) is
always up-to-date and ready to go. Don’t worry about
package managers, frameworks and runtimes. It never gets old.

▲ ~ now --version

We offer pre-built binaries of our command line interface (64 bit). They even work on devices without Node.js installed!

Linux (glibc)


Alpine (musl)


You can also install it with npm as follows:

npm install -g now

Open Source

The code for our clients is available for you to download, inspect and modify:


Our desktop app built with Next.js and Electron (electron-next).


Our command line client written in Node.js and compiled using pkg.


Our low-level API JavaScript client for Node.js and the browser.

While looking at the code, you'll be able to understand deeply
how our API works, you can contribute bugfixes or new features
and or just propose a new idea.

Now Desktop is powered by Electron
