CLI client for Geofront, a simple SSH key management server
It provides a CLI client for Geofront, a simple SSH key management server.
$ pipsi install geofront-cli
What you have to do first of all is to configure the Geofront server URL. Type geofront-cli start and then it will show a prompt:
$ geofront-cli start Geofront server URL:
We suppose http://example.com/ here. It will open an authentication page in your default web browser:
$ geofront-cli start Geofront server URL: http://example.com/ Continue to authenticate in your web browser... Press return to continue
List available remotes
You can list the available remotes using geofront-cli remotes command:
$ geofront-cli remotes web-1 web-2 web-3 worker-1 worker-2 db-1 db-2
If you give -v/--verbose option it will show their actual addresses as well:
$ geofront-cli remotes -v web-1 firstname.lastname@example.org web-2 email@example.com web-3 firstname.lastname@example.org worker-1 email@example.com worker-2 firstname.lastname@example.org db-1 email@example.com db-2 firstname.lastname@example.org
SSH to remote
You can easily connect to a remote through SSH. Use geofront-cli ssh command instead of vanilla ssh:
$ geofront-cli ssh web-1 Welcome to Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS (GNU/Linux 2.6.32-042stab078.27 i686) * Documentation: https://help.ubuntu.com/ ubuntu@web-1:~$
In most cases, you probably need to list remotes to find an alias to SSH before run geofront-cli ssh command. geofront-cli go command is a single command for these two actions at once:
$ geofront-cli go (...interactive fuzzy finder for remotes is shown...) Welcome to Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS (GNU/Linux 2.6.32-042stab078.27 i686) * Documentation: https://help.ubuntu.com/ ubuntu@web-1:~$
Note that there’s a shortcut command gfg which is an alias of geofront-cli go.
There is geofront-cli scp command as well, which is corresponding to scp:
$ geofront-cli scp file.txt web-1:file.txt file.txt 100% 3157 3.1KB/s 00:00 $ geofront-cli scp -r web-1:path/etc/apt ./ sources.list 100% 3157 3.1KB/s 00:00 trusted.gpg 100% 14KB 13.9KB/s 00:00
