dynect-rest

Interact with the Dynect REST API.

Resource Records

Since this is 90% of what you'll be doing, we make it easy.

require 'dynect_rest'
dyn = DynectRest.new("CUSTOMER", "USERNAME", "PASSWORD", "ZONE")
dyn.a.fqdn("sunshine.example.com").ttl(3600).address("192.168.1.1").save
dyn.cname.fqdn("something.example.com").cname("ec2-10-10-10-10.amazonaws.com").save
dyn.publish

Will add an A record and a CNAME. You can use the chained method syntax for every resource record - we map unknown methods to the resource data you make in the call. See “example.rb” for an executable example using environment variables.

Everything else

We wrap up the lower-level functionality of the API, so you can focus on just making the calls. For example, to get a list of contacts:

dyn = DynectRest.new("CUSTOMER", "USERNAME", "PASSWORD", "ZONE")
dyn.get('Contact')

To create a new contact:

dyn = DynectRest.new("CUSTOMER", "USERNAME", "PASSWORD", "ZONE")
dyn.post('Contact', { "first_name" => "Bobo", "last_name" => "Clown", "organization" => 'The Circus', "email" => "bobo@example.com" })

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.

  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.

  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)

  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
