Developer command line tools

To support you with bootstrapping, running and deploying applications we have built a Command Line Interface. The tool is the successor of the cumulocity-node-tools. To avoid conflicts, it listens to the new command c8ycli instead of c8y. You can install it via npm:

npm install -g @c8y/cli

Usage

c8ycli [options] [command]

Info: The commands must be executed from the root of the project.

Options

    -u, --url <url>                 The URL of the remote instance
    --version                       Provides version number
    -h, --help                      Provides usage information

Commands

All the commands except of new take an array of glob patterns. These will be solved to folders or entry point manifests.

    new [name] [template]                   Creates a folder to start a new application or extend an existing one
    serve [options] [appPaths...]           Runs local development server
    build [options] [appPaths...]           Builds the specified apps
    deploy [options] [appPaths...]          Deploys apps from the specified paths
    locale-extract [options] [srcPaths...]  Extracts all strings for translation and outputs the .po files to defined folder

The new command

The c8ycli new [name] [template] helps to start an empty application or to extend one of our existing applications (Cockpit, Devicemanagement or Administration). To extend an existing application use as [name] and [template] the name of the existing application like this:

$ c8ycli new cockpit cockpit

Tip: You can use the c8ycli new command without any parameter to get an interactive wizard which let you choose the name, template and version.

Tip: The c8ycli new command has a -a flag which defines which package to use for scaffolding. This way you can also define which version of the app you want to scaffold, e.g.:

  • c8ycli new my-cockpit cockpit -a @c8y/apps@1004.11.0 will scaffold an app with the version 10.4.11.0
  • c8ycli new my-cockpit cockpit -a @c8y/apps@latest will scaffold an app with the latest official release. Same as if used without the -a flag
  • c8ycli new my-cockpit cockpit -a @c8y/apps@next will scaffold an app with the latest beta release.

Application options

Application options can be defined with --app.<option>=<value>. These will be applied to all applications found with [appPaths...].

    --app.name="My Application"
    --app.key=myapp-key
    --app.contextPath=myapplication
    --app.brandingEntry="./branding/mybranding.less"

Webpack options

Webpack options can be defined with --env.<option>=<value>. These will be directly passed to the webpack configuration.

    --env.mode="production"
    --env.hmr
