The CLI using CLIgen is a central part of Clixon.

Using the CLI

Once the backend is started, the easiest way to use Clixon is via the CLI.

The following example shows how to add an interface in candidate, validate and commit it to running, then look at it (as xml) and finally delete it:

  clixon_cli -f /usr/local/etc/example.xml
  cli> set interfaces interface eth9 ?
    description               enabled                   ipv4
    ipv6                      link-up-down-trap-enable  type
  cli> set interfaces interface eth9 type ex:eth
  cli> validate
  cli> commit
  cli> show configuration xml
  <interfaces xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:yang:ietf-interfaces">
cli> delete interfaces interface eth9
