Our main development tool is called
pvr. It lets you interact with your Pantavisor-enabled device remotely through Pantahub. This CLI will be what you use to
clone your device as well as
post different demos to it for easy testing and seamless onboarding, among other operations.
Get pvr stable¶
You can download it from the following locations:
- PVR for Linux/AMD64
- PVR for Linux/ARM32V6
- PVR for Darwin/AMD64
- PVR for Windows/x32
- PVR for Windows/x64
Once downloaded, continue with next section.
Install the pvr binary¶
To install the Linux version you need to extract and place the binary in your
tar xvzf pvr-012.linux.amd64.tar.gz mkdir -p ~/bin cp pvr ~/bin/pvr chmod +x ~/bin/pvr export PATH=$PATH:~/bin
To install the Windows version all you need is unzip the binary and place it in a directory to which your user has access and can run executables from.
C:\Users\YOURUSER is usually a good location.
Once you have it installed just calling the
pvr command from your shell should show you the help menu, where you can get familiarized with the different features that it provides.
You can also take a look at the maintain your system how-to guide for a view on how you can interact with your devices using
Get last pvr version¶
If you prefer to use the last
pvr version instead of using the stable one, you can do the following:
pvr global-config DistributionTag=develop pvr self-upgrade
The stored binary will automatically upgrade to the last version.
