All supported design flows and use models can be run using Tcl commands. You can use Tcl scripts to run the entire design flow, including design analysis and reporting, or to run parts of the design flow, such as design creation and synthesis. You can use either individual Tcl commands or saved scripts of Tcl commands.

If you prefer working directly with Tcl commands, you can interact with your design using a Vivado Design Suite Tcl shell, using the Tcl Console from within the Vivado IDE. For more information about using Tcl and Tcl scripting, see the Vivado Design Suite User Guide: Using Tcl Scripting (UG894) and Vivado Design Suite Tcl Command Reference Guide (UG835). For a step-by-step tutorial that shows how to use Tcl in the Vivado tools, see the Vivado Design Suite Tutorial: Design Flows Overview (UG888).

For more information on using a Tcl-based approach using either the Project Mode or Non-Project Mode, see Understanding Project Mode and Non-Project Mode.
