The Bitwarden command line interface is written using TypeScript and Node.js, so it is cross-platform and supports Linux, Windows and macOS.
This is a list of features of the command-line tool itself (I removed the options and examples because this is too long; just use bw --help View the complete Bitwarden CLI help):
