We need your help!

dbxcli is under active development! As you can see from the API docs, we only support a small number of features today and have only scratched the surface of what’s possible. We would love feedback from you, our users, to guide what to build next and how to improve the tool.

So please, file feature requests, report bugs or better yet, send us pull requests! More on contributing below.
