This is a command line interface for Meshtastic devices that has been built using the Go programming language developed by Google. This allows for an executable file to be downloaded for your operating system and run without installing other pre-requisits. The only requirement is for the CP210x USB to UART bridge drivers to be installed. A selection of executables for different operating systems are available, and further operating systems can be supported as required.
A full list of commands can be viewed by running
--help. Each command also has its own
--help flag that provides more information on its subcommands and flags.
Every command requires the
--port flag to be set to the port the radio is attached to. This can be set to a serial port (like
/dev/cu.SLAB_USBtoUART) or an IP address depending on which communication method should be used to communicate with the radio. The CLI will automatically determine if TCP or serial communications should be used depending on what value is provided to
