Particle CLI, Workbench IDE and MacOS on M1

Just curious how the cli port to the m1 is going and when might it be available for a beta?

The last time I tried to install via wonderbread or whatever it's called, it ruined my day and nearly killed my MacOS install. I have a lot of dev environments, (including VS Code plugins), going on and the last thing I need is to have to blow it all away and rebuild it. It all works nicely enough on my Intel Mac, (MacIntel), but trying to get particle cli working after moving over, it not trivial.

Thanks for any info,


I have an M1 and M1 Pro both running the CLI without issue.

The first thing to do is to set terminal to run using Rosetta, and then you run the installer:

bash <( curl -sL )

Same here.... M1 using VS + Workbench no problem... :grin:

Yeah, I get it, Rosetta blah, blah, blah. I am guilty, I am a purest. When I moved from my Intel MBP I just let it recover as one does so I had cli for Intel on my MBP M1 and of course it didn't work. So I jumped the hoops and it was like smashing into a brick wall until I gave up. Now, it's in a state where even running in Rosetta the install fails.

The OSX now uses zsh so running bash is not exactly what I want. I pulled down the shell script but nothing I did there help much. It improved things, but didn't fix anything. I've net done, yet another, clean up due to lack of time so I think I will have to stick with the Pico W until the M1 version is released. So that is why I was curious how the progress is going and when a beta might be available. The RTL8721DM has come cool stuff I'd like to mess with that the RP2040 doesn't have but I can wait.
