Help Scout Command Line Tools Build Status Code Climate

Command line interface for Help Scout :: API example application

A simple command line client application that can be used with Help Scout. This is built using the Symfony Console and the PHP API Client.

This is an example project used to demonstrate the Help Scout API. It's much more common to use the API to build:

  • Custom Integrations with your other tools
  • A synchronization tool
  • An intranet dashboard interface
  • Or a million other things!

But, we love programmers, and there's something magic about having Help Scout on the command line too!

Quick Start

Run the bin/helpscout file from the command line. It will prompt you for your API key. It will store an API token in a ~/.helpscout.yml file.
