tbx.exe on the Desktop folder.
The watermint toolbox can run from any path in the system if allowed by the system. But the instruction samples are using the Desktop folder. Please replace the path if you placed the binary other than the Desktop folder.
This document uses the Desktop folder for command example.
cd $HOME\Desktop .\tbx.exe services google sheets sheet append -data /LOCAL/PATH/TO/INPUT.csv -id GOOGLE_SHEET_ID -range RANGE
$HOME/Desktop/tbx services google sheets sheet append -data /LOCAL/PATH/TO/INPUT.csv -id GOOGLE_SHEET_ID -range RANGE

You may find the message like:
“tbx” was blocked from use because it is not from an identified developer.
And you may find the button “Allow Anyway”. Please hit the button with your risk. At second run, please hit button “Open” on the dialogue.
