No, there's no command line equivalent, nor is there any real plan to add one soon. Therefore you would have to resort to using a Python script. It would be a fairly simple script though. For example, to make a smooth worm whose radius is equal to the residue's MAVconservation attribute + 0.25, it would be something like:
from chimera import openModels, Molecule, RibbonStyleWorm, Residue
for m in openModels.list(modelTypes=[Molecule]:
for r in m.residues:
conserve = getattr(r, "MAVconservation", None):
if conserve is None:
r.ribbonDrawMode = Residue.Ribbon_Round
r.ribbonDisplay = True
r.ribbonStyle = RibbonStyleWorm(conserve + 0.25)
You would put the above in a file ending in .py (e.g. "worm.py") and run it simply by opening it with the "open" command.
