NAME

API::CLI - Generic Framework for REST API Command Line Clients

SYNOPSIS

    use API::CLI::App::Spec;

    package API::CLI::MetaCPAN;
    use base 'API::CLI';

    sub add_auth {
    }

    package main;

    my $appspec_file = "$Bin/../metacpancl-appspec.yaml";
    my $spec = API::CLI::App::Spec->read($appspec_file);
    my $runner = App::Spec::Run->new(
        spec => $spec,
        cmd => API::CLI::MetaCPAN->new(
            dir => "$ENV{HOME}/.githubcl",
        ),
    );
    $runner->run;

DESCRIPTION

This is an experimental first version.

With API::CLI you can create a simple commandline client for any REST API which has an OpenAPI specification.

    # 1. parameter: owner
    # 2. parameter: repo
    % githubcl GET /repos/:owner/:repo perlpunk API-CLI-p5

The generated help will show all methods, endpoints, parameters and options.

Query parameters are represented as command line options starting with --q-:

    % metacpancl GET /pod/:module App::Spec --q-content-type text/x-pod
    =head1 NAME

    App::Spec - Specification for commandline apps
    ...

It can also generate shell tab completion:

     % metacpancl <TAB>
     GET   -- GET call
     POST  -- POST call
     help  -- Show command help

     % digitaloceancl GET /<TAB>
     /account       -- Account information
     /droplets      -- List all droplets
     /droplets/:id  -- Retrieve a droplet by id

     % metacpancl GET /pod/:module App::Spec --q-content-type text/<TAB>
     text/html        text/plain       text/x-markdown  text/x-pod

Bash users: Note that completion for options and parameters currently does not work.
