QATAKI ====== (Please note: Twitter used to work some time ago. Currently it is not supported.) Qataki is a CLI gs.sdf.org/StatusNet/Twitter client. It's a shell script that you can use to read/post notices from the command line in a simple manner. Besides that, with qataki you can: reply to posts; retweet notices; search for notices. As you can see there are not fancy features. However, if you feel that something useful lacks, contact me (@chr, gs.sdf.org) or play yourself with the code! Qataki's website: http://chr.tx0.org/qataki By default gs.sdf.org and Twitter support is enabled. You can use a StatusNet site by creating an alias in a configuration file. More info here: http://chr.tx0.org/qataki/documentation#StatusNet It has been tested with bash (used by default) and ksh93, on NetBSD and Debian. This is how it looks like: http://chr.tx0.org/qataki/screenshots.shtml DEPENDENCIES ------------ You'll need usual UNIX utilities like sed/awk/grep. You'll also need cURL, ELinks, and par. INSTALLATION ------------ 1) Download: $ wget http://github.com/chr/qataki/blob/master/qataki 2) Make it executable: $ chmod +x qataki 3) Use it: $ ./qataki (you can place it somewhere in your $PATH so you can run it directly as "qataki", without the leading dot-slash). When you run Qataki for the first time, it will ask your user info and save it in its configuration file (by default it's located at $HOME/.qataki/qataki.conf). You can add more accounts later running "qataki k". Read "qataki h" for help. --  http://curl.haxx.se/  http://elinks.or.cz/ . This is not, however a "hard" dependency. If ELinks is not installed on your system, Lynx will be used. In this latter case, you'll have problems with accented letters and non-latin alphabet.  http://www.nicemice.net/par/ . This one also isn't really necessary, though it will format nicely the output.
