Full Description


OpenWhisk is a cloud-first distributed event-based programming service. It provides a programming model to upload event handlers to a cloud service, and register the handlers to respond to various events. Learn more at or try it on IBM Bluemix.

Quick Start

A Vagrant machine is the easiest way to run OpenWhisk on Mac, Windows PC or GNU/Linux.
Download and install Vagrant for your operating system and architecture.

Follow these step to run your first OpenWhisk Action:

# Clone openwhisk
git clone --depth=1

# Change directory to tools/vagrant
cd openwhisk/tools/vagrant

# Run script to create vm and run hello action

Wait for hello action output:

wsk action invoke /whisk.system/utils/echo -p message hello --result
    "message": "hello"

These steps were tested on Mac OS X El Capitan, Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS and Windows using Vagrant.
For more information about using OpenWhisk on Vagrant see the tools/vagrant/

Native development

Docker must be natively installed in order to build and deploy OpenWhisk.
If you plan to make contributions to OpenWhisk, we recommend either a Mac or Ubuntu environment.
