Cloud Edition™ :cloud:

Good news! Octocatsay is now baked into the GitHub API, so you don’t even need to install it. Simply point your browser (or curl) to https://api.github.com/octocat to have our beloved mascot deliver an inspiring GitHub Zen meditation, or append a custom message using the ?s=YOURMESSAGEHERE query parameter like this.

On Premise (a.k.a. regular installation)

Run the following from a shell (presuming you use bash):

$ curl https://raw.github.com/cobyism/octocatsay/master/install.sh | $(which bash)
$ source ~/.bashrc

TODO

  • Create an octocathink version like cowthink.
  • Do a better job on the ASCII, especially the negative space around the eyes.
