This is a simple tool to help you out when creating and deploying your Beanstalk repos.
This isn't (yet) a general command line tool that will give you to access all of the features of Beanstalk.
To create a repo try this:
$ beanstalk -m repo:create -r test_repo --colour green
Ensure you have PHP installed as CLI. Run
php -v to check
Download the file and make it executable
chmod a+x beanstalk
Either place it in your path, or add to your path.
echo 'export PATH=YOURPATHHERE:$PATH' >> ~/.profile
For example, if you placed "beanstalk" in a directory called "bin" in your home directory, your path might be:
When using the tool for the 1st time you will be prompted to add in your Beanstalk details.
You can also add a beanstalk_cli.config to your home directory containing:
[account_settings] account = ACCOUNT_NAME username = USER_NAME password = PASSWORD
Note: Your account name should be as it appears in your Account URL, not the actual "company name."
If you want to store your Beanstalk password in your Keychain rather than in plain text you can read the guide on the Wiki - https://github.com/leonbarrett/BeanstalkCommandLine/wiki/Using-Keychain
beanstalk --help for help.
$beanstalk -m repo:create -r REPO_NAME -t (git/svn/mercurial) --colour blue - will guide you through creating a repo with optional Staging and Production environments
$beanstalk -m repo:list - return a list of repos
$beanstalk -m repo:search -r REPO_NAME - search for a repo
$beanstalk -m repo:changes -r REPO_NAME - will list the most recent changes, grouped by date then ordered by time, with the revision and author
$beanstalk -m repo:releases -r REPO_NAME - will list the most recent releases, grouped by date then ordered by time, with the revision and author
$beanstalk -m repo:info -r REPO_NAME - will show info, and server environments for a repo
$beanstalk -m repo:deploy -r REPO_NAME -e ENVIRONMENT_NAME -c "commit message" -v REVISION - will allow you to deploy an environment. The script will prompt you for all details if not passed in.
$beanstalk -m repo:deployall -r REPO_NAME -e ENVIRONMENT_NAME -c "commit message" -v REVISION - will allow you to re-deploy all files to an environment. The script will prompt you for all details if not passed in.
$beanstalk account:config - will allow you to update your Beanstalk config details (passwords are stored as plain text!)
$beanstalk keys:view - will allow you to view your SSH keys that have been added to Beanstalk
$beanstalk keys:create - will allow you to add the Key on your machine to your Beanstalk account
These are global parameters that will work across the methods:
- -m or --method = the method name. This is required to actually do anything. See above for a list of available methods
- -r or --repository = repository name
- -v or --version = revsion (for use with deploying)
- -e or --environment = environment name (for use with deploying)
- -c or --comment = commit message (for use with deploying)
- -p or --path = file path (for use with web previews)
- -t or --type = repository type (git/svn/mercurial)
- --colour = repository label colour
When passing in a repo name, this must be the name and not the title. Type
$beanstalk -m repo:list to see a list of repos (the names are within brackets).
