Go version of the Iron.io command line tools.
Quick and Easy (Recommended)
curl -sSL https://cli.iron.io/install | sh
If you're concerned about the potential insecurity
curl | sh, feel free to use a two-step version of our installation and examine our
curl -f -sSL https://cli.iron.io/install -O sh install
curl | sh as an Installation Method?
We'd like to explain why we're telling you to
curl | sh to install this software.
The script at https://cli.iron.io/install has some relatively simple logic to download the
ironcli binary for your platform. When you run that script by piping the
sh, you're trusting us that it's safe and won't harm your computer. We hope that you do!
But if you don't please see the section just below this one on how to download and run the binary
yourself without an install script.

Before Getting Started
Before you can use IronWorker, be sure you've created a free account with Iron.io and setup your Iron.io credentials on your system (either in a json file or using ENV variables). You only need to do that once for your machine. If you've done that, then you can continue.
See the official docs for more detailed info on using Docker for IronWorker.
Actually Getting Started
The easiest way to get started is by digging around.
$ iron --help for example usage and a list of commands

Since go1.5, we are lab rats in the go1.5 vendoring experiment. This eliminates the need to modify import paths and depend on package maintainers not to break things. For more info, see: https://golang.org/s/go15vendor.
We use dep to manage the vendoring. To build ironcli:
dep ensure go build
Other Installation Methods
Grab the latest version for your system on the Releases page.
You can either run the binary directly or add somewhere in your $PATH.
Use the iron/cli Docker image
If you have Docker installed, then you don't need to install anything else to use this.
All the commands are the same, but instead of starting the command with
iron, change it to:
docker run --rm -it -v "$PWD":/app -w /app iron/cli ...
If you're using the Docker image, you either need to have your
iron.json file in the local directory (it won't pick it up from $HOME),
or set your Iron credentials in environment variables:
export IRON_TOKEN=YOURTOKEN export IRON_PROJECT_ID=YOURPROJECT_ID
And then use
-e flags with the docker run command:
docker run --rm -it -e IRON_TOKEN -e IRON_PROJECT_ID -v "$PWD":/app -w /app iron/cli ...
on OSX with HomeBrew:
brew install ironcli
