rbc-tools: Manage 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 <https:"" redbridge="" rbc-tools="" issues="">`_

Getting started

1. Register for an account on `RedBridge Portal <https:"" account="" signup=""/>`_
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<br> [main]
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::

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
