If you have to create/edit your radio config files from the GUI on your desktop then Chirp is not fully usable from the command line.

I keep my chirp files saved in a Dropbox folder with public URLs - this way I can edit from the GUI on my desktop and then fire up the Raspberry Pi in the car (using my phone's hotspot feature) so it can pull the latest chirp images from Dropbox (via wget) and update the radio using command line chirp. I'm still working on the README but here's my files for putting it all together:  https://github.com/tycen/chirpi
