Command line tools for managing RedBridge Cloud

rbc-tools are command line tools for managing RedBridge Cloud <>.

Using rbc-tools you can manage instances, networks and othe compute resources in RBC.

The tools are tested on MacOS X and Linux only at the moment, but should also work on Windows in a cygwin environment.

The tools are in a early beta stage so please report any bugs to or as issues on github <>

Getting started

  1. Register for an account on RedBridge Portal <>

  2. Get your access key and secret key from your account page in the portal.

  3. Create a ~/.rbc/rbc.cfg file (in a terminal):

    mkdir -p ~/.rbc
    cat > ~/.rbc/rbc.cfg <<EOF
    apikey = <your api key as found in the Portal>
    secretkey = <your secret key as found in the Portal>
    endpoint =
  4. Install rbc-tools using pip (or easy_install)

  5. Now you should have access to a number of command line scripts, prefixed with rbc-*

Note that you can also set api key and secret key by using environment variables:



Create a ssh key pair:

rbc-sshkeys generate my-keypair > ~/.ssh/my-keypair_id_rsa

To deploy 3 small instances in the RedBridge Cloud, using a ssh key:

rbc-instances deploy -i 3 -g test -t rbc/ubuntu-14.04-server-cloudimg-amd64-20GB-201461111 -o small -w default -s my-keypair my-instances
