👩‍💻 Development

To contribute changes to our automation, you'll likely want to be able to run it locally. Here's what you'll need:

  • Install Python 3
  • Install make
  • Install pipenv.
  • Register a Cloudflare user account
    • any non-special account will do
  • Add each Cloudflare domain/zone/website (those mentioned above)
    • you can "fake it" by initiating the import process, without activating (ie. no need to have access to the actual domain)
  • Generate a properly scoped Cloudflare API token
    • Documentation for creating tokens in your profile
    • Permissions: Zone | DNS | Edit
    • Zone Resources: Include | Specific zone | for each zone/domain
      • Alternatively: Include | All zones from an account

To get started with this repo:

git clone
cd domains

For a list of all support commands available via make, type:


To run your first commands:

make setup

# Validate your config locally
make validate

# Copy and modify as needed with API token
cp sample.env .env

# Do a dry run against Cloudflare (no changes will be made)
make dry-run

# Do a REAL run (!!!)
# WARNING: this is destructive, and will delete any records on a domain that
# are not present in your configuration files.
make run
