In order to develop on the next-generation platform, your workspace must be on a paid plan.
All good things come to an end! If you need to uninstall the Slack CLI, follow the instructions below.
✨ Just need to uninstall an app? Refer to uninstall an app from your workspace.
Run the following from your terminal window:
$ rm -rf ~/.slack # Delete the download binary $ rm /usr/local/bin/slack # Delete the command alias (replacing `slack` with a command name)
Run the following commands in PowerShell:
The command binary is stored in
$HOME\.slack-cli. This binary can be removed with the following command:
rd -r $HOME\AppData\Local\slack-cli
$HOME is substituted for the full path, e.g.
PowerShell is required for uninstalling the Slack CLI from Windows machines; an alternative shell will not work.
Removing the command from the
$env:path can be done with the following command:
$env:Path = ($env:Path -split ';' -ne '$HOME\AppData\Local\slack-cli\bin') -join ';'
Removing the command from the system path can be done with the following command:
[System.Environment]::SetEnvironmentVariable('Path', (([System.Environment]::GetEnvironmentVariable('Path', [System.EnvironmentVariableTarget]::User) -split ';' -ne '$HOME\AppData\Local\slack-cli\bin') -join ';'), [System.EnvironmentVariableTarget]::User)
Finally, general configurations can be removed with the following command:
rd -r $HOME\.slack
To check that uninstallation was successful, run the following commands and verify that you receive an error — in this case, that's a good thing!
slack version echo $env:path
These instructions will uninstall the Slack CLI, but not its dependencies. Follow these instructions to uninstall Deno.
Until next time!
