Inspect Function CLI

Hi, just wondering if the ‘inspect’ function can output to a text file of some sort? If it has a command line interface, or some sort of output functionality that I haven’t discovered, that would be great to know about :slight_smile:
Especially because whenever I click on a different button on PIO home, the inspect feature needs to be rerun which can be sometimes annoying.


There is pio check on the CLI, and also as a shortcut in the command palette (Ctrl+Shift+P). But this does only static analysis, no size analysis.

Thanks Max, that is a shame that we can’t get a text based output. I may work on webscraping the output as the information is really great.

PIO check does support outputting in machine-readable JSON.
