Entering commands

User interfaces

There are numerous user interfaces available for Breezy. The core package provides a command line tool called brz and graphical user interfaces (GUIs) are available as plug-ins.

Using brz

The syntax is:

brz [global-options] command [options and arguments]

Global options affect how Breezy operates and can appear either before or after command. Command specific options must appear after the command but may be given either before, during or after any command-specific arguments.

Common options

Some options are legal for all commands as shown below.

Short form

Long form




get help



be more verbose



be more quiet

Quiet mode implies that only errors and warnings are displayed. This can be useful in scripts.

Note: Most commands typically only support one level of verbosity though that may change in the future. To ask for a higher level of verbosity, simply specify the -v option multiple times.
