limactl list

List instances of Lima.


List instances of Lima.

The output can be presented in one of several formats, using the –format flag.

–format json - output in json format –format yaml - output in yaml format –format table - output in table format –format ‘{{ }}’ - if the format begins and ends with ‘{{ }}’, then it is used as a go template.

These functions are available to go templates:

indent : add spaces to beginning of each line missing : return message if the text is empty

The following legacy flags continue to function: –json - equal to ‘–format json’
