The majority of tools available via GUI are available in WP-CLI as well. Those which are not yet available are on our to-do list.
To get the list of commands run wp help reset. Additional help is available for every command via the standard WP-CLI help interface. 

All actions have to be confirmed. If you want to skip confirmation use the --yes option. Remember, think twice, there is no undo.
