Installation

The ev command line interface (CLI) is provided as a binary for various platforms. The ev interface can be run in either interactive mode (a command line interpretive shell) or as simple commands on the command line.

Step 1: Download

Step 2: Install and run

  • Unzip the downloaded file.
  • Move to a location you prefer, and add to your path.
  • Run like:
./ev --version
ev 1.0

Step 3: Getting connected

  • Test the connection to make sure everything is working. This test returns a list zero or more sources.

The username and password are the same you would use to connect to eventador.cloud. If you don't have an account, you can register to create one.

./ev -U <username> -P <password> source list
[]  # connected - zero sources.

Ev supports both a script mode (default) or an interactive mode. See interactive mode section for interactive mode commands.

Overriding configurations

A file can be created with common configuration and will be used for settings when ev starts. Ev looks for an optional settings file at $HOME/.ev.

cd $HOME
mkdir .ev
cd .ev

Using your favorite editor, create a file with the following contents:

{
    "protocol": "https",
    "host": "api.eventador.cloud",
    "port": "443"
}
