Docker Run

Note: the Docker image is a multiarch image. So it will also work on Raspberry Pi's.

sudo docker run \
 --name transip-dns-cli \
 --rm \
  marklagendijk/transip-dns-cli list-dns \
 --username="myusername" \
 --privateKey="$(<private-key.pem)" \
 --domainName="example.nl"

Docker Compose

docker-compose.yml:

version: "3"
services:
  transip-dns-cli:
    image: marklagendijk/transip-dns-cli
    restart: unless-stopped
    volumes:
      - ./private-key.pem:/home/node/app/private-key.pem
    command: ddns-service --username="myusername" --privateKeyFile="private-key.pem" --domainName="example.nl" --type="A"
