Setting up the CLI

If you want to use the SnowConvert CLI (Command Line Interface), you first need to have the corresponding installation file for the CLI version. The file would look like this:

The next step is to extract the contents of the installation file. E.g., the extracted files can be saved in the following folder: /Users/<User>/Documents/dotnet-artifacts

Then, you must run the following command in the terminal. Please consider replacing the actual location where you extracted the files. Depending on the configuration of your machine, you might need to use the sudo command to use root privileges:

sudo ln -s /Users/<User>/Documents/dotnet-artifacts/orchestrator/snowct /usr/local/bin/snowct

If /usr/local/bin is in your PATH environment variable, then you will be able to use the snowct command to execute SnowConvert. For example, you can execute this command to learn more about the CLI:

snowct --version

You should see the current installed version of your SnowConvert CLI:
