Downloading core packages using CLI

Is there a way to download core packages using the CLI? e.g. tool-pioplus, pysite-pioplus, etc

Yes, just run pio account login and PIO will automatically download all Core packages

Ok. Is there a way to download the core packages prior to executing a pio account login? I’m currently running PIO within Docker and trying to cache the core package layers.

Any command from the list below will download PIO Plus Core packages

  • pio login
  • pio test
  • pio debug
  • pio remote

For example, you can use “fake” pio account logout command to force DL process.
