Sync DNS records stored in a flat file format to your DNS provider.

Project description

Sync DNS records stored in a flat file format to your DNS provider. Cloudflare support currently provided.

Installation PyPI Version

$ pip install namesync

Quick Guide

Create a file with the name of your domain:

$ touch

Or, if you have existing records, you can export them:

$ namesync --get

Enter one record per line with the following format:

<record-type> <name> <value> <ttl:optional>

For example:

A       *         # You can even use comments
A       .         # . references the domain itself,
A       test
A       example 86400
CNAME   mail
MX      .

MX records allow you to specify a priority:

MX <name> <value> <priority:optional> <ttl:optional>

Like this:

MX      . 20
MX      . 30 86400

If the value contains spaces, quote it:

TXT     .       "v=spf1 a ~all"

Then sync your records:

$ namesync

You will be given a chance to review your changes before they are synced:

The following changes will be made:
ADD    A     *
ADD    A     example 86400
ADD    A     test
ADD    CNAME mail
ADD    MX    .
UPDATE A     .
REMOVE A     old

usage: namesync [-h] [-g] [-z ZONE] [-y] [-d DATA_DIR] [-t] RECORDS

positional arguments:
  RECORDS               file containing DNS records, one per line. The zone is
                        derived from the basename of this file. For example,
                        if "dns/" is used then the zone is assumed
                        to be "" unless the --zone option is used

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -g, --get             save existing DNS records to RECORDS
  -z ZONE, --zone ZONE  specify the zone instead of using the RECORDS filename
  -y, --yes             sync records without prompting before making changes
  -d DATA_DIR, --data-dir DATA_DIR
                        the directory where namesync.conf and other cache data
                        is stored. [default: ~/.namesync]
  -t, --dry-run         print actions and exit without making any changes
