CLI for managing commercetools cloud resources on Rackspace/AWS
Full Description

nube CLI

nube is a CLI for managing commercetools cloud resources on Rackspace/AWS. The word "nube" is taken from the spanish language and simply means "cloud".


Using go get:

$ go get

Or clone and build yourself:

$ git clone
$ go get

Or using Docker:

$ docker run --rm -v ~/.nube.yaml:/root/.nube.yaml svenmueller/nube

In case you want to pass a file to ---user-data-file, you need to mount Docker volume.

$ docker run --rm -v ~/.nube.yaml:/root/.nube.yaml -v /path/to/user-data-file svenmueller/nube

Define an alias for repeated calls in (add line to ~/.profile)

alias nube='docker run --rm -v ~/.nube.yaml:/root/.nube.yaml svenmueller/nube'

# List all server instances
$ nube servers instance list
# Create 3 server instances (using defaults for flavor/size etc.)
$ nube servers instance create server1 server2 server3
# Create 1 server instance using custom flavor/image and user-data file
$ nube servers instance create server1 \
--flavor="2 GB Performance" \
--image="Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) (PVHVM)" \
# Destroy 3 server instances using ID or name
$ nube servers instance destroy cdf0bb56
# List all hosted zones
$ nube dns zones list
# List all resource records of for given hosted zone ID
$ nube dns records list /hostedzone/XXXXXX


There are multiple ways to set values for nube CLI. All values are looked up in the following order:

  • Configuration file (default path is ~/.nube.yaml)
  • Environment variable (upper case, prefix NUBE_, - replaced by _, e.g. NUBE_RACKSPACE_USERNAME)
  • Flags (e.g. --rackspace-username)

Example configuration file (~/.nube.yaml)

  rackspace-username: bart.simpson
  rackspace-api-key: 12121212121
  rackspace-region: LON

  aws-access-key-id: 113131313131313
  aws-secret-access-key: 00000000000

  # to avoid having to pass --hosted-zone-id option to create resource record set
  # hosted-zone-id: /hostedzone/XXXXXXX

Named Profiles

The nube CLI supports named profiles stored in the config files. You can configure additional profiles by adding entries to the config files.

The following example shows a config file with two profiles:

  password: 3342h3c23423423
  password: dfsfw4534534534

To use a named profile, add the --profile option to your command. The following example lists server instances using the production profile from example above.

# List all hosted zones
$ nube dns zones list

By default, the named profile default is used if no --profile option is found.
