The create command is used to start a JavaScript console that connects to an already running local or remote Kit node.


kit key create [options]
  kit key create [flags]

  -h, --help       help for create
      --nopass     Force key to be created with no passphrase
      --push       Mark as Push Key
  -s, --seed int   Provide a strong seed (not recommended)


  • --nopass - Sets the encryption passphrase to the default, unsafe passphrase “passphrase” which essentially means the key is unprotected. This is not recommended.

  • --push - Mark the key as a push key. This means the intent is to use the key for signing push requests. When the key is listed, the push key address will be printed out instead of a user address.

  • -s, --seed - Provide an integer to be used as the seed. This is not recommended and only used for testing situations where a key needs to be reproducible.

  • -h, --help - Prints out a help message.


  • Create a regular key.

  • Create a Push Key
