Overview Install Uninstall How To Use All Commands Contributing

Overview

m-cli is a macOS command line tool that lets you interact with utilities and applications entirely in Terminal. It differs from other macOS command line tools in the following ways:

  • You can easily manage administrative tasks
  • It doesn't install 3rd party tools since it doesn't have dependencies
  • Installation is easy and doesn't require intervention
  • It only uses macOS commands

Install

You can install m-cli using Homebrew, or you can manually install it.

Homebrew install

If you have Homebrew installed, run:

brew install m-cli

Manual install

If you want to manually install m-cli, run:

curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/rgcr/m-cli/master/install.sh | sudo sh

You can also install it to a different path, shown below:

Note: You need privileges

# Uninstall

To uninstall m-cli from your system, run:

How To Use

m-cli commands are executed using the following steps:

1. Run
m
to display all of the commands (utilities) available in m-cli.

2. Run
m 
to display the options available for this command.

3. Run
m  
to execute an option for this command.

A diagram of this structure is shown below:

m

|     |___play
|     |___pause
|     |
|     ...
|
|___disk 
      |___ls
      |___list
      |___fs
      ...

For example, running

m itunes
will display the options available for iTunes, as shown below:
    usage: m itunes [ status | play | pause | next | prev | mute | unmute | vol up | vol down | vol #| stop | quit | help ]

Examples:
  m itunes status       # Show status
  m itunes play         # Play track
  m itunes pause        # Pause track
  m itunes next         # Play next track
  m itunes prev         # Play previous track
  m itunes mute         # Mute iTunes
  m itunes unmute       # Unmute iTunes
  m itunes vol up       # Volume Up
  m itunes vol down     # Volume Down
  m itunes vol #        # Set volume level
  m itunes stop         # Stop track
  m itunes quit         # Quit iTunes

In this example, running

m itunes play
will play the current selected track in your iTunes music library.
