rc-client

Official client (and client library) for sending remote commands to hosts running the remote-control service.

Can be integrated into other applications or run from the command line.

Command Line

npm install -g @sazze/rc-client
rc --help

To run the same command on multiple hosts, pipe the hosts to rc.

cat hosts.txt | rc -c config.json "uname -a"

Configuration File:

Specify a configuration file to use by passing the -c option.

The configuration file is a properly formatted JSON file (example below):

{
  "host": "127.0.0.1",
  "port": 4515,
  "keyDir": "/path/to/key/dir",
  "keyName": "foo"
}

Application Integration

npm install --save @sazze/rc-client

Create a new instance of the client library to work with:

var Client = require('@sazze/rc-client');

var options = {
  host: '127.0.0.1',
  keyDir: process.env.HOME,
  keyName: 'foo'
};

var client = new Client(options);

Recommended Integration: (introduced in version 1.3.0)

The client library implements a Duplex stream interface (in ObjectMode) that allows messages to be sent by calling write() and received by registering a listener to the data event.

var client = new Client(options);

client.on('data', function (msg) {
    // format the message with a specific rc protocol message type
    msg = new Client.protocol.Response(msg);
    
    console.log(msg);
    
    // end the session
    client.disconnect();
});

var msg = new Client.protocol.Message();

msg.command = 'echo "Hello World!"'

client.write(msg);

Piping to and from an instance of the client library is also supported.

var client = new Client(options);
// stream that emits rc protocol message objects
var msgStream = new MsgReadableStream();

msgStream.pipe(client).pipe(process.stdout);

All Duplex stream interactions are supported.

Deprecated Integration:

var client = new Client(options);

client.send('echo "Hello World!"', function (err, result) {
  if (err) {
    console.error(err.stack || err.message || err);
  }

  if (result) {
    console.log(result);
  }
});
