The deltacloudc command line tool is being deprecated. For now the code making up deltacloudc has been moved to the /deltacloud/clients/console directory but will ultimately be removed from the repo. If the command line client is important to you then please let us know. A new command line client may be put onto the roadmap if there is demand for one.
Installing the Deltacloud Ruby client also gives you the deltacloudc command line tool. This executable uses the Deltacloud client library to speak to the Deltacloud server through the Deltacloud REST API. This means that you can control your cloud infrastructure from the command line. The general usage pattern for deltacloudc is:
$ deltacloudc collection operation [options]
The following examples assume that the Deltacloud server is running on your local machine port 3001 (the deltacloudd server daemon defaults to 'localhost:3001') and that it was started with the 'mock' provider (i.e. deltacloudd -i mock ).
List all collections available in the current driver:
$ deltacloudc -l -u http://mockuser:mockpassword@localhost:3001/api
Get a list of all images:
$ deltacloudc images index -u http://mockuser:mockpassword@localhost:3001/api
List all operations for the buckets collection:
$ deltacloudc buckets -l -u http://mockuser:mockpassword@localhost:3001/api
Create a new blob in the bucket called 'bucket1':
$ deltacloudc blob create -i 'my_new_blob' -b 'bucket1' -f /home/marios/file.txt
