Using "netlify open" to jump directly to your project's admin page

Throughout December we'll be highlighting a different Netlify feature each day. It might just be the thing you need to unlock those creative juices, and dust off that domain you registered but never deployed! Keep an eye on the blog and on Twitter for each feature!

This one is quick, but is also very handy!

Even though the Netlify CLI gives you control over so many aspects of your projects, sometimes the most convenient place to dig deeper into configuration, management, logging, and reviewing deploys, is directly in the Netlify admin application in your web browser.

But what if you have lots and lots of projects?

Would it be useful to be able to jump directly into the right one? To access the one linked to the local development folder that you are currently working in?

We have good news. There is a command for that!

netlify open
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

To make the most of this command (and so many others, you'll need first to have installed the Netlify CLI by using the command npm install -g netlify-cli, and to have linked your local project to a Netlify site with netlify link)

Now all of the detailed admin views and controls for your project are just a few keystrokes away!
