ralio

command-line client for the rallydev API

ralio

A usable command-line client for rally.

$ npm install -g ralio

ralio also uses elinks to format HTML content - install it using homebrew or apt-get.

Run the command ralio configure and follow the steps.

username and password should be self-explanatory. project and team should contain the names of the Rally projects that correspond to your project backlog and your team. Where I work, we run multiple teams from a common product backlog, hence the different options. If you don't work that way, put the same project name in both.

Unfortunately, Rally doesn't use OAuth (or any other kind of API keys), so ralio needs your password. I suggest you chmod 0600 ~/.raliorc to prevent your password going walkies. In future I'll be stashing credentials in the OS key store.

See the built-in help:

$ ralio --help
