Project description

The team b cli

This is a cli platform to help a developer manage multiple repositories and other common automation tasks.


tb can be installed in your local Python 3.7 environment or it can be downloaded as a single binary for your operating system.

Python install

pip install tb-cli

Operating system-specific binary install

  1. Visit and download the release for your operating system.
  2. Untar the file and you will find a single 'tb' binary.
  3. Place it somewhere in your path
  4. Upon first execution of a repo command like 'tb repo', it will ask you some questions about your environment


This project includes a number of helpers in the Makefile to streamline common development tasks.

To install it in development mode, run


This will not only install tb in a local virtualenv, but also build the 'tb' binary in dist/

Environment setup

The following demonstrates setting up and working with a development environment:

# create a virtualenv for development
make virtualenv
source env/bin/activate

# run tb cli application
tb --help

# run pytest / coverage
make test

Releasing to Bitbucket

The tb release process uses Bitbucket pipelines to release the version and release the linux binary (OSX has to be released manually).

To run a release:

  1. Find the commit you want to release. For the latest commit, you'd visit:
  2. Find the "Run pipeline" link on the right side and click "Run". This will update the CHANGES.MD file with the release info, tag the repository, build the binary, upload the binary to Bitbucket, then finally change the version to the next dev version.
  3. Build and upload the OSX release
    1. You must create a Bitbucket app token that has the ability to write to your repositories. Remember this, along with your Bitbucket user name, as it will be needed in the last step
    2. Get access to an OSX machine and run the next steps on that machine.
    3. Clone the tb repository and checkout the tag that was created previously
    4. Run the osx release command:
      1. make dist-osx-upload
