Resin CLI Documentation

This tool allows you to interact with the resin.io api from the comfort of your command line.

To get started download the CLI from npm.

Then authenticate yourself:

$ resin login

Now you have access to all the commands referenced below.

Logs

logs <uuid>

Use this command to show logs for a specific device.

By default, the command prints all log messages and exit.

To continuously stream output, and see new logs in real time, use the --tail option.

Note that for now you need to provide the whole UUID for this command to work correctly.

This is due to some technical limitations that we plan to address soon.

Sync

sync [uuid]

WARNING: If you're running Windows, this command only supports cmd.exe.

Use this command to sync your local changes to a certain device on the fly.

After every 'resin sync' the updated settings will be saved in '/.resin-sync.yml' and will be used in later invocations. You can also change any option by editing '.resin-sync.yml' directly.

Here is an example '.resin-sync.yml' :

$ cat $PWD/.resin-sync.yml
uuid: 7cf02a6
destination: '/usr/src/app'
before: 'echo Hello'
after: 'echo Done'
ignore:
    - .git
    - node_modules/

Command line options have precedence over the ones saved in '.resin-sync.yml'.

If '.gitignore' is found in the source directory then all explicitly listed files will be excluded from the syncing process. You can choose to change this default behavior with the '--skip-gitignore' option.

Examples:

$ resin sync 7cf02a6 --source . --destination /usr/src/app
$ resin sync 7cf02a6 -s /home/user/myResinProject -d /usr/src/app --before 'echo Hello' --after 'echo Done'
$ resin sync --ignore lib/
$ resin sync --verbose false
$ resin sync

Options

--source, -s <path>

local directory path to synchronize to device

--destination, -d <path>

destination path on device

--ignore, -i <paths>

comma delimited paths to ignore when syncing

--skip-gitignore

do not parse excluded/included files from .gitignore

--before, -b <command>

execute a command before syncing

--after, -a <command>

execute a command after syncing

--port, -t <port>

ssh port

--progress, -p

show progress

--verbose, -v

SSH

ssh [uuid]

WARNING: If you're running Windows, this command only supports cmd.exe.
