dokku-client 0.2.3

Heroku-style command line interface for Dokku

Heroku-like command line interface for `Dokku`_

**Note:** This project is in the very early stages of development.
You can help by adding commands (see below).

.. image::

.. image::


.. code-block:: bash

pip install dokku-client


You can specify the Dokku host & app on the command line, but you may
find it convenient to set the following environment variables instead:

.. code-block:: bash

export DOKKU_APP=my-app-name

Setting these variables in your virtualenv's `postactivate` hook may
be useful.


Once installed, usage is simple:

.. code-block:: bash

dokku-client help


.. code-block:: none

Client for Dokku

dokku-client <command> [<args>...]
dokku-client help

global options:
-H <host>, --host=<host> Host address
-a <app>, --app=<app> App name

full list of available commands:

help Show this help message
configget Set one or more config options
configset Set one or more config options in the app's ENV file
prompt Open a prompt
restart Restart the container

See 'git help <command>' for more information on a specific command.

Contributing new commands

Dokku-client allows any developer to hook in extra commands. This is done using
exactly the same mechanism that dokku-client uses internally, that of entry points
provided by ``setuptools``.

First, create a python package. You may have your own favorite way of doing this, but I
use seed_:

.. code-block:: bash

mkdir dokku-client-mycommand
cd dokku-client-mycommand
pip install seed
seed create

Second, create a class which extends ``dokku_client.BaseCommand`` and implements the method
``main(args)``. Also, the doc-block at the top
of the class will be used by docopt_ to parse any command line arguments, so make
sure you include that. See the `prompt command`_ for an example.

And third, in your new ```` file, specify your new class as an entry point:

.. code-block:: python

'dokku_client.commands': [
'mycommand = dokku_client_mycommand.mycommand:MyCommand',

Run ```` so that the new entry point is initialized:

.. code-block:: bash

# Run in develop mode, so files will not be copied away.
# You can continue to edit your code as usual
python develop

You should now find that your new command is available in dokku-client,
run ``dokku-client help`` to check.

Once done, you can release your package to PyPi using ``seed release --initial``.
