Raison d’être

Comprehensive, low-level DNS toolkits can be cumbersome for the more common zone management tasks–especially those related to making simple changes to zone records. They can also come with a steep learning curve. Enter localzone: a simple library for managing DNS zones. While localzone may be a low-calorie library, it’s stuffed full of everything that a hungry hostmaster needs.
