goodreadsh

Command line interface for Goodreads

Installation

Homebrew

Easiest way to install on macOS is by using Homebrew.

$ brew tap prakashdanish/homebrew-formulae
$ brew install goodreadsh

AUR

Arch users can install with their preferred package manager, I'm using trizen here.

$ trizen -S goodreadsh

Manual installation

$ git clone https://github.com/prakashdanish/goodreadsh && cd goodreadsh
$ export PATH="$PATH:/path/to/dir"
$ chmod +x goodreads

Developer key

goodreadsh requires your developer key in order to use the goodreads API, obtaining one is fairly trivial.

  1. Access your developer key here.
  2. Copy your developer key over to goodreadsh's config file. ~/.goodreads.conf
DEVELOPER_KEY="<your_key_here>"

Your config file should already be present in your home dir ~/.goodreads.conf and if it's not, then run the command once without any options or create the file manually.
