Install kn on Cloud Shell

< 1 min read

Want to run the Knative CLI tool kn in Google Cloud’s Cloud Shell? It’s easy:

Download the latest release from github. linux-amd64 is the platform you want for CloudShell. Here I download version 1.3.0:

wget ""

Then, move it into place, and add it to your PATH:

chmod +x kn-linux-amd64
mkdir -p .local/bin
mv kn-linux-amd64 .local/bin/kn
echo 'export PATH=".local/bin:$PATH"' >> .bashrc
. .bashrc
