It looks like it's a pre-compiled binary

$ ./mysterium_client_osx_amd64
Missing VPN node key!

$ ./mysterium_client_osx_amd64 --help
Usage of ./mysterium_client_osx_amd64:
  -node string
    	Mysterium VPN node to make connection with
  -runtime-dir string
    	Runtime directory for temp files (should be writable) (default ".")
flag: help requested ```

I ran mysterium client and it's started correctly. Then I typed mysterium_client --cli and entered the interactive cli.

./mysterium_client -cli                                                                                                                                            (gke_linker-aurora_asia-east1-a_aurora-dev/default)

[INFO] Mysterium CLI tequilapi commands:
  ├── new
  ├── list


Q1: It's confusing, do the VPN users need to be familiar with these commands?

Then I tried identities new and a consumer identity was created, afterward I typed unlock <consumer-identity>, connect <consumer-identity> <provider-identity> to connect to the server, but it failed:

2018-04-12T09:12:09.489494809 [Error] [Tequilapi.Client]server response invalid: 500 Internal Server Error (
[WARNING] open /Users/me/.mysterium/run/client.ovpn: no such file or directory

Q2: I realized the client.ovpn file is missing, so how will I retrieve/generate this file?

I searched Google and find this page

Q3: Do I need to install Tunnelblick and continue?

Hope for your help, thanks.

A1: No they don't. It's just cli for command line enthusiasts, and more like demonstration of tequilapi
A2: Just make sure that /Users/me/.mysterium/run directory exists and is readable/writable by you - or you can create PR to automatically create runtime dir :)
A3: No you don't need to install tunnelblick. BUT your system must have openvpn available brew install openvpn

I hope it helps :)
