There is already a REST API, but it would be really useful to also have a command line tool (circle?) in the same vein as Heroku’s, Amazon’s, and Google’s command line tools. This way, things like configuration and builds can be more easily scripted, and it’s also much easier to work with a command line tool when working interactively.
For instance, I wrote a command called
circle that interacts with the REST API just for this purpose. So when I want to see information about myself, I can just type:
… and it hits the
/me endpoint (the API token is stored in a configuration file read by the command). Easy!
