NAME

       mbedls - detect and list Mbed Enabled devices connected to the host computer

SYNOPSIS

       mbedls [--simple|--json] [--debug]

       mbedls --list

       mbedls --mock ID:NAME

       mbedls --help

       mbedls --version

DESCRIPTION

       mbedls detects and lists ARM Mbed Enabled devices connected to the host computer.

       It  provides  the  following  information for all connected boards in a console (terminal)
       output:

       · Mbed OS platform name

       · mount point (MSD or disk)

       · serial port

       mbedls requires that an Mbed device be mounted before it shows up in  the  results.   Many
       systems  do  not  automatically  mount  USB  devices.   It  is recommended that you use an
       automounter to manage this for you.

              list attached targets without column headers and borders

       -j, --json
              list attached targets with detailed information in JSON format

       -J, --json-by-target-id
              map attached targets from their target ID to their  detailed  information  in  JSON
              format

       -p, --json-platforms
              list attached platform names in JSON format

       -P, --json-platforms-ext

       -l, --list
              list all target IDs and their corresponding platform names understood by mbedls

       -m, --mock ID:NAME
              substitute or create a target ID to platform name mapping used when invoking mbedls
              in the current directory

       --skip-retarget
              skip parsing and interpretation of the re-target file, ./mbedls.json

              list mbeds, regardless of whether they are mounted or not

       -d, --debug

       --version
              print package version and exit

RESULT FORMATS

       The Mbed LS command-line accepts a few arguments to change the format of the results.  The
       default  format  is  a  table.   You  may pass --simple to simplify this table format, and
       --json to print the table as a json list of the rows.

   Simple (no table formatting)
              $ mbedls --simple

                  }
              ]

MOCKING (RENAMING) PLATFORMS

       Override a platform's name using the --mock parameter:

              $ mbedls --mock 0240:MY_NEW_PLATFORM
              $ mbedls
              +-----------------+----------------------+-------------+-------------+--------------------------------------------------+-----------------+
              | platform_name   | platform_name_unique | mount_point | serial_port | target_id                                        | daplink_version |
              +-----------------+----------------------+-------------+-------------+--------------------------------------------------+-----------------+
              | MY_NEW_PLATFORM | MY_NEW_PLATFORM[0]   | D:          | COM18       | 0240000032044e4500257009997b00386781000097969900 | 0244            |
              +-----------------+----------------------+-------------+-------------+--------------------------------------------------+-----------------+

       The --mock parameter accepts a platform ID  and  a  platform  name,  separated  by  the  :
       character.  The platform ID is the first 4 characters of the target_id.  The platform name
       is the name you are temporarily assigning to this platform.

       To remove a mocked platform, use the --mock parameter again.  Continuing from the previous
       example, use -<platform id> as the value:

              $ mbedls --mock -0240
              $ mbedls
              +---------------+----------------------+-------------+-------------+--------------------------------------------------+-----------------+
              | platform_name | platform_name_unique | mount_point | serial_port | target_id                                        | daplink_version |
              +---------------+----------------------+-------------+-------------+--------------------------------------------------+-----------------+
              | K64F          | K64F[0]              | D:          | COM18       | 0240000032044e4500257009997b00386781000097969900 | 0244            |
              +---------------+----------------------+-------------+-------------+--------------------------------------------------+-----------------+

       You can also remove all mocked platforms by supplying * as the target_id:

              $ mbedls --mock="-*"

       NOTE:  Due  to  a  quirk in the parameter formatting, the command-line can interpret -* as
       another parameter instead of a value.  It is necessary to  use  the  complete  --mock="-*"
       syntax, so the command-line interprets each part of the command correctly.

RETARGETTING PLATFORMS

       It  is  possible  to  change  the  returned results for certain platforms depending on the
       current directory.  This is especially useful when developing new platforms.

       The command-line tool and Python  API  check  the  current  directory  for  a  file  named
       mbedls.json.   When  it  is  present, it overrides the returned values.  The format of the
       mbedls.json file is:

              {
                  "<target_id>": {
                      "<key>": "<value>"
                  }
              }

       For  example,  to  change  the   serial_port   of   the   K64F   with   a   target_id   of
       0240000032044e4500257009997b00386781000097969900,   the   mbedls.json  file  contains  the
       following:

              {
                  "0240000032044e4500257009997b00386781000097969900": {
                      "serial_port": "COM99"
                  }
              }

       This results in the following output from the command-line tool:

              $ mbedls
              +---------------+----------------------+-------------+-------------+--------------------------------------------------+-----------------+
              | platform_name | platform_name_unique | mount_point | serial_port | target_id                                        | daplink_version |
              +---------------+----------------------+-------------+-------------+--------------------------------------------------+-----------------+
              | K64F          | K64F[0]              | D:          | COM99       | 0240000032044e4500257009997b00386781000097969900 | 0244            |
              +---------------+----------------------+-------------+-------------+--------------------------------------------------+-----------------+

       Note how the serial_port value changed from COM18 to COM99.  Deleting the  mbedls.json  or
       using the --skip-retarget parameter removes these changes.
