The Re:infer Command Line Interface,
re, is a unified
tool that provides a consistent interface for interacting with all parts of
Re:infer from a terminal.
re simplifies managing Re:infer resources, such as sources and datasets, as
well as importing or exporting communications data. Additionally,
multiple contexts, making it easy to switch between multiple authentication
tokens for different users, service accounts or Re:infer endpoints.
The Re:infer CLI is open source and developed on GitHub.
- Create, get, update and delete operations for all the different Re:infer resources. This includes sources, datasets, comments, buckets, streams and more.
- Context management for multiple API tokens and Re:infer endpoints.
- Easily upload new verbatims to a source.
- Download verbatims from a set of sources and datasets together with the human applied annotations. Useful for backups, migrating data or for applying some transformations to the data.
- Basic shell autocompletion for
bash, colorized terminal output, progress bars and more
Statically linked binaries with no dependencies are provided for all major platforms
To build from source, you need a recent version of the Rust toolchain installed. To install using cargo
cargo install --locked reinfer-cli
Ensure you have the cargo bin directory in your path (typically
Alternatively, you can always clone the repository and build it with
The Re:infer CLI ships with a lot of command documentation that is accessible
$ re --help
$ re <command> --help
$ re <command> <subcommand> --help
We encourgage you to use read the included documentation as it's extensive and always up to date.

To troubleshoot issues with the Re:infer CLI, the following may be useful
- Make sure the latest version of
reis installed. Get the installed version by running
--verboseflag prints debugging messages, which may narrow down the issue.
- Connection issues may be due to improperly configured proxy settings. See Using a Proxy to configure request proxying.
- The Re:infer CLI configuration directory is system specific, e.g.
~/.config/reinferon Linux or macOS and
%AppData%/reinferon Windows. It can safely be deleted and the CLI will repopulate it, but all configuration (including user sessions) will be lost.
