EXAMPLES

        setup provider environmental variables:

              LEXICON_CLOUDFLARE_USERNAME="myusername@example.com"
              LEXICON_CLOUDFLARE_TOKEN="cloudflare-api-token"

        list all TXT records on cloudflare

              lexicon cloudflare list example.com TXT

        create a new TXT record on cloudflare

              lexicon          cloudflare          create           www.example.com           TXT
              --name="_acme-challenge.www.example.com." --content="challenge token"

        delete a TXT record on cloudflare

              lexicon           cloudflare           delete          www.example.com          TXT
              --name="_acme-challenge.www.example.com." --content="challenge token"

              lexicon cloudflare delete www.example.com TXT --identifier="cloudflare record id"

AUTHENTICATION

       Most supported DNS  services  provide  an  API  token,  however  each  service  implements
       authentication  differently.   Lexicon  attempts  to standardize authentication around the
       following CLI flags:

       --auth-username

              For DNS services that require it, this is usually the account id or email address

       --auth-password

              For DNS services that do not provide an API token,  this  is  usually  the  account
              password

       --auth-token

              This is the most common auth method, the API token provided by the DNS service

       You  can  see  all  the  --auth-*  flags for a specific service by reading the DNS service
       specific help:

              lexicon cloudflare -h

       Instead of providing Authentication information via the CLI, you can also specify them via
       Environmental  Variables.   Every  DNS  service  and  auth  flag  maps to an Environmental
       Variable as follows:

              LEXICON_{DNS Provider Name}_{Auth Type}

       So instead of specifying --auth-username and --auth-token flags when calling the cli,  you
       could   instead   set   the   LEXICON_CLOUDFLARE_USERNAME   and   LEXICON_CLOUDFLARE_TOKEN
       environmental variables.

LETSENCRYPT INSTRUCTIONS

       Lexicon has an example [dehydrated hook file](examples/dehydrated.default.sh) that you can
       use for any supported provider.  All you need to do is set the PROVIDER env variable.

              PROVIDER=cloudflare  dehydrated  --cron  --hook  dehydrated.default.sh  --challenge
              dns-01

       Lexicon can  also  be  used  with  [Certbot](https://certbot.eff.org/)  and  the  included
       [Certbot hook file](examples/certbot.default.sh) (requires configuration).
