Command Line Switches List


(Patman / NYSTHI Manual) #1

Hey @Vortico, is there already, or can there be created someplace, a list of commandline switches for rack and their uses? (please)

Thanks!

In Rack v1: https://github.com/VCVRack/Rack/blob/v1/src/main.cpp#L65-L74

  • -s <path>: Sets system directory.
  • -u <path>: Sets user directory.
  • -d: Enables development mode. Disables Plugin Manager, logs to stdout, uses cwd for system/user dirs.

(Patman / NYSTHI Manual) #3

and if I’m understanding main.cpp in the 0.6 branch correctly, those are -g, -l, -d respectively?


(Andrew Belt) #4

Yes.

Thanks! Knowing these could prove useful for stuff like specifying different directories for patch building vs performance, etc
