Hey Mastodon sysadmins, what kind of cool shit would you like to see tootctl do?

@pandora_parrot A command-line interface for Mastodon administration/maintenance

@Gargron Niiiice. I would love the ability to handle database migrations, upgrades, exports, etc. Like, if I wanted to easily move from a docker-based installation to a non-docker one, or move servers, etc. (I'm not much of a sysadmin and still learning that stuff, so maybe that's already easy, idk.)


@pandora_parrot Hnngg I don't know how much of that can be truly compacted down into a single command. There's just many ways it could be setup, that's why there's separate commands.

But hey maybe having user export on the CLI would be cool. Like we already have that function in the UI but just connect it to the CLI...

@Gargron ooh yeah. user exports would be great.

What about invite generation? Like, my instance is a private RL friends only instance. So I generate invites a lot. A CLI could be handy.
