Our main development tool is called
pvr and 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. You can download it from the following locations:
Get pvr stable¶
You can use docker to get the last stable version:
docker run --rm registry.gitlab.com/pantacor/pvr:stable | tar x
This will create a folder named
bin with the
pvr binary in subfolders for all supported platforms.
Install the pvr binary¶
To install the Linux version you need to place the extracted binary in your
$PATH and make sure it is made executable with
$ mkdir ~/bin $ cp bin/<host-architecture>/pvr ~/bin/pvr $ PATH=$PATH:<absolute-path-bin-pvr>
To install the Windows version all you need is to 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 to operate over a Pantavisor device with
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.
