CLI abc options

Below, a simple list of commands in the CLI, in case that is useful for making the Command Line less intimidating to those not used to it.

The latest version of the SAFE CLI can be downloaded and installed using the install script.

The The SAFE CLI User Guide gives a walk through of how to upload content and use the CLI but sometimes just trying what the options are can be quicker to learn.

The list above can be refreshed with:
$ safe setup completions | grep '_describe -t commands' | sed "s/ _describe -t commands '//" | sed 's/commands.*//' | sort | grep -v 'help'

The standard “help” is not listed but on most all these commands, you can expect to add --help to the end and that will provide more detail.


nicely done! :smile:


@davidpbrown is a sed genius



ugh perl. It’s like somebody gave a tribe of howler monkeys a truckload of 90% non alpha-numeric symbols and promised them unlimited bananas if they would hurl them at the screen – to misquote somebody else very badly…

PS you should get an extra like just for using an xkcd toon in ANY context whatsoever.

I had a friend who used to take part in Obfuscated Perl competitions – note the past tense…

a redundancy if ever I heard one.

Guy I used to know was still writing stuff like this until a few years ago.
We fell out when I called him the William Rees-Mogg of geeks. He did take himself dreadfully seriously but was a reliable source of err … comestibles for a time.
