boom manages your text snippets. On the command line. I just blew your mind.

For more details about what boom is and how it works, check out boom's website. For full usage details (including a complete list of commands), check out boom's wiki.


gem install boom

Quick and Dirty

$ boom gifs
Boom! Created a new list called "gifs".

$ boom gifs melissa
Boom! "melissa" in "gifs" is "". Got it.

$ boom melissa
Boom! Just copied to your clipboard.

And that's just a taste! I know, you're salivating, I can hear you from here. (Why your saliva is noisy is beyond me.) Check out the full list of commands.


Want to join the Pantheon of Boom'ers? I'd love to include your contributions, friend.

Clone this repository, then run bundle install. That'll install all the gem dependencies. Make sure your methods are TomDoc'd properly, that existing tests pass (rake), and that any new functionality includes appropriate tests. Bonus points if you're not updating the gemspec or bumping boom's version.

All good? Cool! Then send me a pull request!

I love you

Zach Holman made this. Ping me on Twitter — @holman — if you're having issues, want me to merge in your pull request, or are using boom in a cool way. I'm kind of hoping this is generic enough that people do some fun things with it. First one to use boom to calculate their tax liability wins.
