octobrain Build Status

If you live in the shell most of the time, then it is very annoying to switch to the browser in order to open up a GitHub project page. It is a lot to type, right? octobrain is your little friend to help you in this regard. This friendly helper allows you to save aliases for repos and access them via your command line interpreter. Want to test-drive? Cool!

Installation

Install with npm globally.

npm install -g octobrain

Usage

Create an alias (the aliases will be saved in ~/.octobrain)

octobrain npma npmawesome/npmawesome.com

access the repo page (will open the GitHub code view in your browser)

octobrain npma

or open up a specific issue (will open the issue #10 of the respective repo)

octobrain npma -i 10

All the options

usage:

    octobrain alias [namespace] [options]

options: 

    -i, --issue: Open up a specific issue in the browser. 
    -l, --list: Lists all saved aliases.
    -h, --help: Print this usage information.
    -v, --version: Version information

        Will create an alias of the given GitHub namespace (e.g. "octobrain im akoenig/imacss").
