Before filing this issue, please ensure you’re using the latest CLI by running swa --version and comparing to the latest version on npm.

Are you accessing the CLI from the default port :4280 ?

  • No, I am using a different port number (--port) and accessing the CLI from that port
  • [ X] Yes, I am accessing the CLI from port :4280

Make sure you are accessing the URL printed in the console when running swa start!

ℹ️ NOTE: Make sure to enable debug logs when running any swa commands using --verbose=silly

Thank you very much. I can confirm it works on my Windows 10.

Hi @kunukn , here is a temporary manual process to install the binary and use the binary. We will simplify it in the future.

NOTE: This is how the SWA CLI automatically downloads and configures the deploy binary

  1. Visit
  2. Copy the stable JSON content, for eg:
    "version": "stable",
    "buildId": "1.0.020761",
    "publishDate": "2022-09-07T17:34:35.4261936Z",
    "files": {
      "linux-x64": {
        "url": "",
        "sha": "871ae9f154ddb8123e24c507e39dfc11c99f34815e59b178051a6e44a870e308"
      "win-x64": {
        "url": "",
        "sha": "360b76959c68cc0865b1aea144c8eb2aa413f4856e55c781a83bd7e1ad352362"
      "osx-x64": {
        "url": "",
        "sha": "1a90511003609af378ff3628feaf3115f9d7e335085a925045e9f206359fdb90"
  1. Based on your operating system, download the right binary from the provided URLs:
    1. Linux:
    2. Windows:
    3. macOS:
  2. Copy this binary to $HOME/.swa/deploy/VERSION/StaticSiteClient (add .exe for Windows). For eg: /home/USER/.swa/deploy/1.0.020761/StaticSiteClient
  3. Create a file at $HOME/.swa/deploy/StaticSitesClient.json with the following content:

For eg:

   "metadata": {
    "version": "stable",
    "buildId": "1.0.020761",

IMPORTANT: Make sure the StaticSitesClient.json#checksum and StaticSitesClient.json#metadata.files.[OS].sha values match! 6. For Linux and macOS, run chmod +x /home/USER/.swa/deploy/1.0.020761/StaticSitesClient 7. Run swa deploy --verbose silly and make sure SWA_CLI_DEPLOY_BINARY is set correctly. If everything was configured correctly, the deploy should work.

How to compute SHA256 checksum:

  1. On Windows using Powershell:
PS C:\Users\USER> (Get-fileHash -Algorithm SHA256 .\.swa\deploy\VERSION\StaticSitesClient.exe).Hash.ToLower()
  1. On Linux:
➜ sha256sum ~/.swa/deploy/VERSION/StaticSitesClient | head -c 64
  1. On macOS:
➜ openssl sha256 ~/.swa/deploy/VERSION/StaticSitesClient | awk '{print $2}'
