Command line tools

Command line tools are available as part of the BlackBerry 10 Native SDK.

The command-line tools are located in the $QNX_HOST host operating system/user/bin. For example, in a Windows development environment, the folder would be bbndk\host_<NN_N_N_NNNN>\win32\x86\usr\bin where <NN_N_N_NNNN> represents the version of the release.

If you have multiple installations of the Native SDK, run bbndk-env.bat (Windows) or bbndk-env.sh (Mac OS and Linux) from the installation folder of the Native SDK that you want to use.

Here are the available command line tools:
blackberry-airpackager
