Download resources like it's 2019.


To install new alt:V resources into your project nowadays is a 100% manual process that can give you a lot of headaches if done incorrectly. alt:V Resource Downloader comes with the mission to bridge the gap between developers and server owners to make collaboration in our community easier, and help with this process.

alt:V Resource Downloader is NOT maintained, affiliated or sponsored by alt:V team. Any requests or bugs should be addressed in this repository's issues section or talking directly to vanessa#7275, and nowhere else.

(Always in) Beta

This tool has some improvements to be done and wasn't tested in all possible platforms. If you want to help this project to develop further, suggestions and bug reports on the Issues section are appreciated!


Use it with npx (doesn't get installed on your computer):

npx altvrd --help
npx altvrd i altmp/ls-gangwar

Or, if you wish, install it globally:

npm i -g altvrd
altvrd --help


altvrd install altmp/ls-gangwar
# or altvrd i altmp/ls-gangwar

altvrd uninstall altmp/ls-gangwar
# or altvrd u altmp/ls-gangwar

Available commands

Use altvrd [command] -h to check what options each command has.

  • install <author/repo> - Installs a resource using the author username and repository slug.
  • uninstall <author/repo> - Uninstalls a resource.

How to publish my resource?

  1. Publish your resource on GitHub (GitLab and Bitbucket support coming soon!)

  2. Use releases and semantic versioning for the tool to detect updates correctly (optional, but if you don't the tool will always download from master branch)

  3. Keep your resource at root level (don't nest it)

    We have plans to implement a way for developers to specify what folder to install

  4. Add this badge to your resource's README to show some support! (optional, obviously)

  5. Add it to our awesome-altv-resources list :sparkles: (optional)

What is altvrd.json?

It's the file we use to keep your resources updated. Every time you install a new resource, we will check if it's already installed and tell you if it's needed to be updated or not. Here's an example:

  "resources": {
	// This resource uses releases (it has `version` filled)
    "john-doe/my-awesome-resource": {
		// useful to determine if it needs to be updated
		"version": "1.2.1",
		// the folder name, useful to make sure a given resource isn't installed twice
		"folder": "john-doe@my-awesome-resource",
		// the latest version url
		"url": ""
	// This resource doesn't use releases, so it will always be downloaded from master
	"team-stuyk-alt-v/altv-extended": {
		"folder": "team-stuyk-alt-v@altv-extended",
		"url": ""


alt:V Resource Downloader is inspired by fvm-installer, a resource installer for FiveM.
