Commandline interface for managing the Mandrill web service. Note: This has <em>nothing</em> to do with MailChimp - different Mandrill.
Command line tool for managing a Mandrill server. Mandrill is a front-end web service for Munki. If you've never heard of either of these products, you probably don't need mandrillctl.
You'll probably want to install this in your path (which is
/usr/local/bin/ after node is installed), which requires
sudo npm install -g mandrillctl
Both mandrillctl and Mandrill can only run on OS X hosts. Development has been done on 10.9 with no testing on older versions as of v0.6.0. While there is a very good chance they will both work on older versions of OS X, no promises are made.
Still thinking about trying this on a linux server? Don't. It will break and then mock you in front of your friends. Seriously. It won't stop until you cry.
Once you've got mandrillctl installed, the first thing you'll probably want to do is use it to install Mandrill.
sudo mandrillctl --install
By default, Mandrill is configured to use port 80. If you've already got a server on port 80 (and you probably do if this is your Munki server), you should change that port to something else:
# 3001 is just an examplesudo mandrillctl --set-http-port 3001
Lastly, Mandrill is configured to use
http://localhost when listening for OAuth responses, which is again, probably not what you want.
sudo mandrillctl --set-http-host
It's just like it sounds:
sudo mandrillctl --startsudo mandrillctl --restartsudo mandrillctl --stop
When a new version of Mandrill comes out, all you need to do to install it is run:
sudo mandrillctl --upgrade
