protonvpn-cli is the official Linux command line tool for connecting to
the ProtonVPN. It is a full rewrite of the original bash protonvpn-cli
in Python, which adds more features and functionality with the purpose
of improving readability, speed, and reliability.

Before using protonvpn-cli, it must be initialized. Run (as root)

protonvpn init

and follow the prompts on the screen. Your OpenVPN username and password
can be found at Note that both
free and paid accounts are supported.

After protonvpn-cli is configured, run (as root)

protonvpn connect -f

to connect to ProtonVPN using the fastest available server.

Before uninstalling, run

protonvpn configure

to purge the configuration files.

All dependencies must be built with Python3 support.

This requires: docopt, python3, python3-pythondialog, Jinja2, python-requests
