Bring back the CLI!

I can do 99% of my work done over SSH, but I understand the Balena Etcher command line tool is unmaintained. Is this the case?

If so, please promote CLI to tier one support, so that DevOps can integrate Etcher into automated workflows. Otherwise, we might as well ditch Balena for dd.


Balena CLI actually uses a lot of the same code for flashing as Etcher, contained in etcher-sdk. You can flash images to local devices using balena local flash. For more detailed instructions on this command, try balena local flash --help. Let me know if this helps.
