dynect4r is a Ruby library and command line client for the Dynect REST API (version 2).
gem install dynect4r
Using this library in your own project
require 'dynect4r' client = Dynect::Client.new(:customer_name => 'example', :user_name => 'example', :password => 'example') response = client.rest_call(:get, 'Zone/example.org') pp response
Using the built-in command line client
Create a file called .dynect4r containing your Dynect customer name, username and password on one line separated by whitespace. Note that this file is assumed to be in the home directory by default.
See examples below:
dynect4r-client [options] [rdata][, ...]
Multiple sets of rdata can be specified by separating them with commas.
Records can be deleted by not specifying rdata.
Create an A record
dynect4r-client -n test.example.org 18.104.22.168
Create round-robin A records
dynect4r-client -n test.example.org 22.214.171.124,126.96.36.199,188.8.131.52
Create a CNAME record
dynect4r-client -n test.example.org -t CNAME test.example.org.
Create an SRV record
dynect4r-client -n srv.example.org -t SRV 0 10 20 target.example.org.
Help and Troubleshooting
See the –help command line option:
Use debug logging:
dynect4r-client -v debug
All output is also logged to file: dynect4r.log, by default sitting in the home directory.
