The command-line interpreter doesn’t do much yet. By default it does a getDomainNames() call, but with the ‘-u’ option it’s also possible to add or update DNS records. When calling it with ‘-h’, it will show all available options.

$ transip-api

$ transip-api -h
usage: transip-api [-h] [-l LOGINNAME] [-s] [-a] [-u] [-d]
                   [--domain-name DOMAIN_NAME] [--entry-name ENTRY_NAME]
                   [--entry-expire ENTRY_EXPIRE] [--entry-type ENTRY_TYPE]
                   [--entry-content ENTRY_CONTENT]
