Prisma CLI & ConfigurationCLI Command Reference

prisma init

$ prisma init

Bootstraps the service configuration for a new Prisma service. The command launches an interactive CLI wizard by default, helping you to decide where (i.e. to which Prisma server) the service should be deployed later.

If you already know the endpoint, you can pass it using the --endpoint flag and skip the interactive wizard.

The generated files are:

  • prisma.yml
  • datamodel.prisma
  • docker-compose.yml (optional)

If you provide a directory name as an argument to the command, the generated files will be placed inside a new directory with that name.

Flags

-e, --endpoint         The endpoint to be written into prisma.yml

Usage

prisma init DIRNAME

Examples

Create service configuration for Prisma service in a directory called myapp using the wizard

prisma init myapp

Skip wizard and create service configuration for Prisma service in a directory called myapp

prisma init myapp --endpoint http://localhost:4466/myapp/dev
