GtS CLI Tool

GoToSocial compiles to an executable binary.

The standard way of using this binary is to run a server with the gotosocial server start command.

However, this binary can also be used as an admin tool, and for debugging.

Here's the full output of gotosocial --help, without the big list of global config options.

GoToSocial - a fediverse social media server

For help, see: https://docs.gotosocial.org.

Code: https://github.com/superseriousbusiness/gotosocial

Usage:
  gotosocial [command]

Available Commands:
  admin       gotosocial admin-related tasks
  completion  generate the autocompletion script for the specified shell
  debug       gotosocial debug-related tasks
  help        Help about any command
  server      gotosocial server-related tasks
  testrig     gotosocial testrig-related tasks

Under Available Commands, you can see the standard server command. But there are also commands doing admin and testing etc, which will be explained in this document.

Please note -- for all of these commands, you will still need to set the global options correctly so that the CLI tool knows how eg., how to connect to your database, which database to use, which host and account domain to use etc.

You can set these options using environment variables, passing them as CLI flags (eg., gotosocial [commands] --host example.org), or by just pointing the CLI tool towards your config file (eg., gotosocial --config-path ./config.yaml [commands]).

gotosocial admin import

This command can be used to import data from a file into your GoToSocial database.

If GoToSocial tables don't yet exist in the database, they will be created.

If any conflicts occur while importing (an already exists while attempting to import a specific account, for example), then the process will be aborted.

The file format should be a series of newline-separated JSON objects (see above).

gotosocial admin import --help:

import data from a file into the database

Usage:
  gotosocial admin import [flags]

Flags:
  -h, --help          help for import
      --path string   the path of the file to import from/export to

Example:

gotosocial admin import --path example.json --config-path config.yaml

gotosocial admin media prune orphaned

This command can be used to prune orphaned media from your GoToSocial.

Orphaned media is defined as media that is in storage under a key that matches the format used by GoToSocial, but which does not have a corresponding database entry. This is useful for excising files that may be remaining from a previous installation, or files that were placed in storage mistakenly.

This command only works when GoToSocial is not running, since it acquires an exclusive lock on storage. Stop GoToSocial first before running this command!

prune orphaned media from storage

Usage:
  gotosocial admin media prune orphaned [flags]

Flags:
      --dry-run   perform a dry run and only log number of items eligible for pruning (default true)
  -h, --help      help for orphaned

By default, this command performs a dry run, which will log how many items can be pruned. To do it for real, add --dry-run=false to the command.

Example (dry run):

gotosocial admin media prune orphaned

Example (for real):

gotosocial admin media prune orphaned --dry-run=false
