Originally I had drafted out this post to show and explain a shell script that I created to automatically handle Let’s Encrypt certificate issuance and renewal, but honestly, it was a messy hack. A far better solution is Hugo Landau’s (hlandau) acmetool.

It is trivial to install, easy to use, and it keeps things updated automatically (even without root if you choose). The official documentation is awesome and you should check it out.
