Arcanist is a command line interface to Phabricator. This page details how to configure it for use with the Software Heritage forge.


# apt-get install arcanist


$ arc set-config default

where USERNAME/PASSWORD are the general credentials used to access the various Software Heritage websites. (No username/password will be needed for this step in the future, once Software Heritage goes public.)

$ arc install-certificate

arc will prompt you to login into Phabricator via web (which will ask your personal Phabricator credentials). You will then have to copy past the API token from the web page to arc, and hit Enter to complete the certificate installation.

All done! Now have a look at arc help and start hacking.

Configuration file

Arcanist configuration is stored in ~/.arcrc.
