Tilt CLI Reference

tilt ci

Start Tilt in CI/batch mode with the given Tiltfile args


Starts Tilt and runs resources defined in the Tiltfile.

Exits with failure if any build fails or any server crashes.

Exits with success if all tasks have completed successfully and all servers are healthy.

While Tilt is running, you can view the UI at localhost:10350 (configurable with –host and –port).
