posty_cli was replaced by posty_client thanks to iaddict


The posty_cli is the command line interface of the posty softwarestack. It is developed to administrate a mailserver based on Postfix and Dovecot.


You need to install ruby with the version 1.9.3 or later. And a working terminal.


  1. You need to type following in your terminal

#~ gem install posty_cli

  1. Next you need to create a config file in your home directory Path:


-this is the posty Url put here your url where the posty-api is stored
-this is the version from the posty api
:posty_api_version: v1
  1. Now you are able to work with posty_cli


When you have installed the posty_cli you now able to work with the following command #~ posty now it shows you wich commands are possible to type in.


#~ posty domain add the first is our posty_cli main command, the second is the section you would to edit, in this case it is the domain section. The third is what you would do in this section, the example shows to add a new domain. The last one is your new domainname. Very easy isn't it?
