Install pvr

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

Linux

To install the Linux version you need to place the extracted binary in your $PATH and make sure it is made executable with chmod +x.

Windows

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.

Test pvr

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 pvr documentation here.

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 self-upgrade

The stored binary will automatically upgrade to the last version.
