Duostack Command Line Client

A command line client for the Duostack Ruby and Node.js hosting platform.

This project contains the client files themselves (under src/), along with the scripts and support files needed to build gem, npm, and tgz packages of the client.


Install as a gem or npm package:

gem install duostack

npm install duostack

Or just copy the contents of src/ to a location in your PATH, such as /usr/local/bin.


Consult duostack help after installing for client usage details, or go to

To build gem/npm/tgz packages of the client, run rake package. Packages will be written to packages/. To build previous versions, just check out the git tag for the version number of interest, and run the rake task.

Running Tests

The test suite is being continuously improved. Currently, the test suite depends on access to the Duostack API and a set of valid user credentials being present (either in ~/.duostack or provided as environment variables).

Real actions are taken on the platform during test execution. While no user data should be touched, it is recommended that you use a test account whenever running the test scripts. An easy way to do that is to provide DSUSER and DSPASS environment variables to the test script:

DSUSER=testuser DSPASS=testpass rake test

If those are not present, the cached credentials in ~/.duostack will be used (if present), and no tests of credentials syncing can be done.

To run the domain adding/removing test cases, a valid domain name must be provided as an environment variable: rake test

During the test run, this domain will actually be added then removed from the generated test app, and in order to add it successfully, it must be set up properly (CNAME'd to
