Tiktalik Computing command line interface
# Tiktalik Command Line Interface
This is a command line interface utility implemented in Python, which enables the user to perform core operations on the [Tiktalik Cloud Computing](http://www.tiktalik.com) service.
- Python 2.7
Note that package dependencies are automatically installed by pip.
Install using pip:
$ pip install tiktalik-cli
To use the CLI you need an API key. You can generate one in your [admin panel](https://tiktalik.com/panel/#apikeys). The API authentication information consists of an API key and an API secret. You can save this information locally by executing:
$ tiktalik init-auth API-KEY API-SECRET
This saves the key and secret to ~/.tiktalik/auth
Alternatively, if you don’t want to save your API key, you can use the –key and –secret switches on the commandline.
The basic usage patterns is:
$ tiktalik COMMAND
You can get a list of commands by running tiktalik without arguments. To get a help on a specific command, run:
$ tiktalik COMMAND –help
We also have [a tutorial](http://articles.tiktalik.com/content/help/using-tiktalik-command-line-utility/) to quickly get you started.
