Inedo Hub CLI

A separate console program (hub.exe) is included with the standard GUI desktop hub. This tool supports the following commands:


Usage: hub.exe install <product>[:version] [--arg=value]...

Installs/upgrades the specified product (ProGet, BuildMaster, Otter, or Hedgehog). If [:version] is not specified, the latest stable version is used. The --arg=value items are used to pass variables to Romp, and are the same variables defined for the package.
