Nuvolaris groups actions and feeds in packages under a namespace. It is conceptually similar to a folder containing a group of related files.

A package allows you to:

  • Group related actions together.

  • Share parameters and annotations (each action sees the parameters assigned to the package).

  • Provide web actions with a common prefix in the URL to invoke them.

For example, we can create a package demo-package and assign a parameter:

$ nuv package create demo-package -p email
ok: created package demo-package

This command creates a new package with the specified name.

Package Creation, Update, and Deletion

Let’s proceed with the commands to list, get information, update, and finally delete a package:

First, let’s list our packages:

$ nuv package list

/nuvolaris/demo-package/ private

If you want to update a package by adding a parameter:

$ nuv package update demo-package -p email

ok: updated package demo-package

Let’s retrieve some package information:

$ nuv package get demo-package -s
package /nuvolaris/demo-package/sample:
   (parameters: *email)

Note the final -s, which means "summarize."

Finally, let’s delete a package:

$ nuv package delete demo-package

ok: deleted package demo-package

Adding Actions to the Package

Actions can be added to a package using this command:

$ nuv action create <package-name>/<action-name>

This associates an existing action with the specified package.

Using Packages

Once a package is created, actions within it can be invoked using their full path, with this schema: <package-name>/<action-name>. This allows organizing actions hierarchically and avoiding naming conflicts.


Packages in Nuvolaris provide a flexible and organized way to manage actions and their dependencies. Using the Nuv CLI, you can efficiently create, add actions, and manage package dependencies, simplifying the development and management of serverless applications.
