atscm is a node.js-based utility that stores the contents for atvise projects on the file system. This allows you to use your favorite IDE and development tools.

For more details visit our docs at With atscm-cli installed, you can run atscm docs to do so 😀.



Prerequisite: Install node.js (version 10 or later)

How to check which version is installed
  • Make sure node.js (version 10 or later) is installed by running node --version.
  • Make sure npm is installed by running npm --version.

With atscm-cli

atscm can be installed via atscm-cli.

Run npm install --global atscm-cli to install atscm-cli globally. You may have to run this command as an administrator.

With atscm-cli installed run atscm init to create a new atscm project.

With npm init

Simply run npm init atscm to create a new atscm project.

Basic usage

Pulling nodes from atvise server

Running atscm pull will download all nodes from atvise server into the ./src folder inside your project.

By default only displays, serverside scripts and quickdynamics will be split into their JavaScript and SVG sources. You can specify additional transformers to use in your Project configuration file.

Pushing source files to atvise server

Running atscm push will update all nodes from the contents of your ./src folder.

Automatically watching for changes

After running atscm watch files and atvise server nodes are watched for changes. If a file changes, the file is pushed, if a node changes this node is pulled.

atscm watch is very useful if you want edit source files in an external editor but still have the ability to use atvise builder's drag and drop functionality.


Note: We switched to a monorepo after version 1.1. This is an ongoing process, expect more packages to appear here soon.

This repository is structured as a pnpm workspace holding these packages:
