thundercat, a client for nappingcat servers

(as beta as it gets.)

Thundercat is a client command line program that interfaces with the latest versions of nappingcat to provide github-like control over your repositories (but over the terminal!)

thundercat addremote <nickname> <git url>

it will attempt to discover available commands for that new host, and store them in a JSON file locally. When you run thundercat it'll attempt to connect to the server that nickname represents and run the corresponding command.

The side effect -- awesomeness (well, hopefully.) It becomes really easy to add permissions to existing users from the comfort of your terminal:

thundercat <nickname> add_permission garybusey kittygit read chris/test

will grant the user represented by "garybusey" the permission ('kittygit', 'read', 'chris/test') through the not-quite-so-cool-as-magic of nappingcat.

additionally, discoverable commands are parsed by thundercat as JSON so rich data will be (in theory) available to the end-user -- including repository urls, so it's conceivable to add hooks to automatically add git remotes when you create a repo on the server while inside a local git repository.

the results of commands run on the server will be colorized by their status_code, which roughly follows HTTP status codes (I say roughly only because this needs a bit more work at the moment.)


This is not anywhere near the prettiest code, nor should it be considered bullet-proof. It may undergo some serious refactoring in the near futures.

Also notable -- I'm borrowing the regex_helpers library from Django for the time being to provide a reverse-like behavior for thundercat. Thanks (and sorry) guys!

Also, it's a command line program named after the kid's tv show thundercats, so... you might have to live with that.
