<h1>Ghost</h1>
<p>A gem that allows you to create, list, and modify local hostnames
with ease in linux and OS (more to come)...</p>
<h1>Requirements</h1>
<p>Unix-based OS (for now)</p>
<h1>Intended Usage</h1>
<p>This gem is designed primarily for web developers who need to add
and modify hostnames to their system for virtual hosts on their
local/remote web server. However, it could be of use to other people
who would otherwise modify their <code>/etc/hosts</code> file manually and
flush the cache.</p>
<h2>Command</h2>
<pre><code>$ ghost add mydevsite.local
[Adding] mydevsite.local -&gt; 127.0.0.1
$ ghost add staging-server.local 67.207.136.164
[Adding] staging-server.local -&gt; 67.207.136.164
$ ghost list
Listing 2 host(s):
mydevsite.local -&gt; 127.0.0.1
staging-server.local -&gt; 67.207.136.164
$ ghost delete mydevsite.local
[Deleting] mydevsite.local
$ ghost delete_matching test
[Deleting] test2.local
[Deleting] test.local

$ ghost modify staging-server.local 64.233.167.99
