If you’ve used Amazon webservices much at all you’ll probably have come across their DNS service route53. This offers very competitively priced DNS hosting on the Amazon cloud.
$ pip install cli53
The first step everyone migrating commonly goes through is getting their existing zones into the system. Invariably these are in the industry-standard bind format, but route53 uses its own format.
cli53 assists in offering easy import of bind format zones:
$ cli53 import example.com --file zonefile.txt
The majority of route53 functionality is supported. Historically there wasn’t a nice shiny web interface for all this functionality, so cli53 filled that gap. Now there’s plenty of utility in being able to automate operations - for scripting repetitive operations, or automating DNS updates.
create a zone:
$ cli53 create example.com
create a record:
$ cli53 rrcreate example.com www A 192.168.0.1 --ttl 3600
And tons more functionality - check out full docs on github.
