It is possible to pipe status text into `toot post`, for example:

    echo "Text to post" | toot post
    cat mypost.txt | toot post


Authentication
--------------

Before tooting, you need to login to a Mastodon instance:

.. code-block::

    toot login

**Two factor authentication** is supported experimentally, instead of ``login``, you should instead run ``login_2fa``:

.. code-block::

    toot login_2fa

You will be asked to chose an instance_ and enter your credentials.

.. _instance: https://github.com/tootsuite/documentation/blob/master/Using-Mastodon/List-of-Mastodon-instances.md

The application and user access tokens will be saved in two files in your home directory:

* ``~/.config/toot/instances/<name>`` - created for each mastodon instance once
* ``~/.config/toot/user.cfg``

You can check whether you are currently logged in:

.. code-block::

    toot auth

And you can logout which will remove the stored access tokens:

.. code-block::

    toot logout
