IBM Cloud Developer Tools CLI Version 2.1.4 Features

The ability to add a Toolchain with the edit command

With this release of IBM Cloud Developer Tools CLI, the edit command now gives you the ability to add your previously created app to an IBM Cloud Toolchain. At this time, only apps that have been created either through the ibmcloud CLI or the IBM Cloud console can be connected to a Toolchain in this way.

Increased visibility of Docker and Helm commands

The build, run, and deploy commands all provide more insight into the actions being executed with these commands without the need to use the --trace parameter.

Various usability improvements

The deploy command now prompts to allow you to choose the Kubernetes cluster and namespace when deploying to Kubernetes on IBM Cloud.

The code, console, and delete commands will all provide a list of all of your apps to choose from when they are run from outside of an app folder and without specifying an app name. For example, simply run bx dev code from a non-app folder.

When you build, the command will now pull down a more recent version of the Docker image used in your Dockerfile, if one exists.
