Read the changelog


First, download the FusionCMS CLI using Composer:

composer global require fusioncms/cli

Make sure to place Composer's system-wide vendor bin directory in your $PATH so the fusion executable can be located by your system. This directory exists in different locations based on your operating system; however, some common locations include:

  • macOS: $HOME/.composer/vendor/bin
  • Windows: %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Composer\vendor\bin
  • GNU / Linux Distributions: $HOME/.config/composer/vendor/bin or $HOME/.composer/vendor/bin

You could also find the composer's global installation path by running composer global about and looking up from the first line.

Once installed, the fusion new command will create a fresh FusionCMS installation in the directory you specify. For instance, fusion new blog will create a directory named blog containing a fresh FusionCMS installation with all of FusionCMS' dependencies already installed:

fusion new blog

Composer Create-Project

Alternatively, you may also use Composer to create new projects using the latest stable version of FusionCMS by issuing the create-project command. This is the equivalent of doing a git clone/svn checkout followed by a composer install.

composer create-project --prefer-dist --stability=dev fusioncms/fusioncms example
