CLI Utilities

CLI Helpers and Commands

Multiple CLI helpers are provided.

The common functions provided allow invocation and result retrieval similar to the Web API, but from a terminal. The configuration files must be available in default location, or provided as input to resolve operations.

Please refer to the corresponding usage detail of each helper by calling them with --help argument for more details. More specifically:

# display available helpers
cowbird --help

# display available commands of 'services' helper
cowbird services --help

# display specific arguments and options of 'list' command of 'services' helper
cowbird services list --help

The cowbird CLI should be available on your path directly following installation of the package. When using an conda environment, you should activate it first to make the CLI available.

Source code of these helpers can be found here.
