Service Management

The main essence of this command-line tool is to provide simple way of creating services based on boilerplate templates.

Currently it supports a single template default, which provides a way to create a service, targeted to be developed under GitHub version control system, integrated with TravisCI and docker builds. By simply running a single command it will create a ready-to-run service and all you will need is to write it's implementation.

It is recommended to run imq config init right after installation of this command-line tool and before running imq service create commands.

IMQ-CLI can be used with a pre-configured options to shorten commands usage. Global base configurations options usually stored in ~/.imq/config.json file. This file can be managed manually, but it is recommended to use special command:

imq config init

which will guide you through configuration process.

There are also useful commands to retrieve and set specific configuration values, stored in a configuration file:

imq config get

will print all upset configuration options in option = value format.

imq config get [option_name]

will print a single requested option value.

imq config set [option_name] [new_value]

will set requested option to a given new value.

IMQ-CLI supports completions for your shell. It provide a way to generate completions script and add it to your shell configuration, as far as allows to remove previously added completion script just running the corresponding commands:

imq completions on
imq completions off

Currently it supports both zsh and bash shells.
