A Ruby project inspired by Thomas Gideon's python “Flashbake”:wiki.github.com/commandline/flashbake project.
What it is
Automatically checks in files from watched directories to git and github with time, location, weather, and recent twitter comments in the commit comments.
“But, why?” you ask
I thought that Flashbake was a very cool project, but since I spend time in the Ruby world - and do more blogging than writing - converting it to Ruby seemed like a fun weekend project. Plus, I wanted to experiment with monitoring directories, building an app that works well with small Ruby plugins, and do some web scraping.
As always, it's all about writing snippets of fun code.
Run “rubyflashbake –example” in the directory you want to watch to dump the configuration file. Fill in as needed and then launch rubyflashbake and enjoy automatic git and github commits with lots of fun location and web aware commit comments. Bask in joy.
