Installation

$ npm install -g dynroute

Usage

  • Create a hosted zone for your domain in Route53, in case you don't already have one.
  • Update your domain's nameservers with the ones provided by Route53 (for that hosted zone).
  • Put your credentials into a config file such as ~/.awsrc (used by default)
[credentials]
accessKeyId     = AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
secretAccessKey = bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbLwccccembeMdddddI4e

Update now & exit

dynroute -d home.mydomain.com --once

Leave script open to check for updated every X seconds

dynroute -d home.mydomain.com

By default the script will check every 60 seconds if your ip updated, but you can customize that:

dynroute -d home.mydomain.com --time 120

Growl

You can setup Growl notifications to let you know when your IP has been updated for your domain.

Ex:

dynroute -d localhost.mydomain.com --growl

What if the record doesn't exist for that domain?

If there is no A record for that hosted zone that matches your request the script will automatically create one.
