Command Line Interface

It is possible to use the tools from the pxt command line interface (CLI). pxt can:

  • Edit, compile or deploy JavaScript programs.
  • Easily integrate into most IDEs. It comes with built-in support for Visual Studio Code.
  • Run a local web server for the web editor.
  • Author extensions using JavaScript and/or C++.

Using the PXT CLI assumes that you have some experience with programming and will require installation of additional tools on your machine.
