Configuring the Vorto CLI Tool

Before you can use the CLI Tool as a REST Client, you need to initialize basic preferences. By default the preferences are stored in the file .vortocli.yaml.file, which is located in your home directory.

For Windows,

C:\Users\{$username}\.vortocli.yaml.file

For Mac,

/Users/{$username}/Documents/.vortocli.yaml.file

For Linux,

/usr/{$username}/Documents/.vortocli.yaml.file

You have to setup the CLI Tool in one of the following ways:

  • Use the vorto config command.
    To initialize vorto with additional values (or change them afterwards) like username, password, proxy or repository, use the command flags -username, -password, -proxy or -repo.
    Example: vorto config -username <username> -password <password> -repo http://vorto.eclipse.org
  • Edit the .vortocli.yaml file with a text editor.

Enable the proxy in the configuration file .vortocli.yaml (Line 4) if you are accessing internet via proxy server.
