Use Zenkit from the command-line and scripts. Read and update workspaces, lists, items, fields, and webhooks; and perform backups to json.


Install with cargo install zenkit-cli. The program name is zk (usually installed to $HOME/.cargo/bin). Instructions for installing cargo are here

Set the environment variable ZENKIT_API_TOKEN to your api token, which you can obtain (even for the free-tier plan) from your Zenkit account.

Optional: To avoid re-typing -w WORKSPACE for every command for the most-used workspace, set the environment variable ZENKIT_WORKSPACE to the workspace name. The -w WORKSPACE option always overrides ZENKIT_WORKSPACE.

zk Usage

Use zk -h for help.

For the commands below, the parameter values for workspace, list, or field may be an object's id (int), uuid, or display name. Values containing spaces or symbols should be quoted.

All commands except workspaces require a -w workspace parameter or require the environment variable ZENKIT_WORKSPACE to contain a workspace name. The -w option is omitted below for brevity.
