Ghost

A gem that allows you to create, list, and modify local hostnames with ease in linux and OS (more to come)...

Requirements

Unix-based OS (for now)

Intended Usage

This gem is designed primarily for web developers who need to add and modify hostnames to their system for virtual hosts on their local/remote web server. However, it could be of use to other people who would otherwise modify their /etc/hosts file manually and flush the cache.

Command

$ ghost add mydevsite.local
  [Adding] mydevsite.local -> 127.0.0.1

$ ghost add staging-server.local 67.207.136.164
  [Adding] staging-server.local -> 67.207.136.164

$ ghost list
Listing 2 host(s):
  mydevsite.local      -> 127.0.0.1
  staging-server.local -> 67.207.136.164

$ ghost delete mydevsite.local
  [Deleting] mydevsite.local

$ ghost delete_matching test
  [Deleting] test2.local
  [Deleting] test.local

$ ghost list
Listing 1 host(s):
  staging-server.local -> 67.207.136.164

$ ghost modify staging-server.local 64.233.167.99
  [Modifying] staging-server.local -> 64.233.167.99

$ ghost list
Listing 1 host(s):
  staging-server.local -> 64.233.167.99

$ ghost export > some_file

$ ghost empty
  [Emptying] Done.

$ ghost list
Listing 0 host(s):

$ ghost import some_file
  [Adding] staging-server.local -> 64.233.167.99

$ ghost list
Listing 1 host(s):
  staging-server.local -> 64.233.167.99

With RVM you need to add rvmsudo before the command:

$ rvmsudo ghost add mydevsite.local
  [Adding] mydevsite.local -> 127.0.0.1

Library

There is also a library that can be used in Ruby scripts. The ghost command is a wrapper for the library. View the source of bin/ghost to see how to use the library.

Installation

sudo gem install ghost

If you are using RVM:

gem install ghost
