We're thrilled to announce a game-changing addition to the fastn CLI tool that will make your developer life easier than ever! Say goodbye to the days of manually tracking updates because now, fastn has the power to check for updates automatically.

How It Works

When you run the fastn CLI, it will automatically check for updates in the background. If a new version is available, you'll receive a prompt informing you of the update and how to install it. You can choose to install it immediately or defer the update to a more convenient time. This ensures that your workflow remains uninterrupted.

The automatic check only works when the FASTN_CHECK_FOR_UPDATES environment variable is set, it'll silently check for updates and will only log to the console if a new version is available.

Additionaly, you can choose to manually check for updates using the fastn -c command.

Getting Started

To take advantage of the update check feature in fastn, make sure you have the latest version of fastn installed. Visit fastn.com/install/ to download the latest version.
