Mycroft Skills Manager (MSM) is a command line tool used to add, manage and remove Skills on any Mycroft installation. It can install any Skill listed on the Mycroft Skills Repository or from any Github repository. It is a handy tool for Developers and those who may frequently reconfigure, install and uninstall Skills.
To list all Skills available in the Marketplace run:
To search the available Skills run:
mycroft-msm search <name>
To show all available information on a Skill you can use the name or repository url:
mycroft-msm info <name/url>
To install a Skill from the Mycroft Marketplace you can provide a rough title and MSM will return the most likely match.
mycroft-msm install cocktail
If you know the author of the Skill, particularly where multiple Skills with similar names exist, the
install command has an additional optional parameter.
If I wanted a Dice Skill, but only if it was authored by Forslund, I would run:
mycroft-msm install dice forslund
Such a Skill doesn't exist so MSM returns a list of alternative options from the same author:
INFO - building SkillEntry objects for all skillsINFO - Best match (0.34): cocktails by forslundMultipleSkillMatches: cocktails, youtube-music-skill.forslund, mycroft-spotify, game-zork, fallback-aiml
To install a Skill that is not included in the Mycroft Marketplace use the url of the repository.
mycroft-msm install https://github.com/krisgesling/tea-skill
To update all Skills installed on a device run:
Note that if Mycroft detects that any file in a Skill has been modified, it will not update that Skill. This is to prevent loss of any work you are doing in that directory. See MSM Troubleshooting > Uncommitted Changes for tips to resolve this.
To install all default Skills for the device, as well as update all Skills, run:
To uninstall or remove any Skill from the device run:
mycroft-msm remove <name>
Note that default Skills will be reinstalled by the system unless they are explicitly blacklisted. See "How do I disable a Skill?" for more info.
remove command also has an optional
author parameter that can be used to specify which Skill you intend to be uninstalled.
mycroft-msm remove <name> <author>
