Installation

$ gem install webtail

Usage

$ cat ~/.webtailrc
var line = $('pre:last');
var text = line.text();

if (text == '\n') {
  line.css({
    margin: '3em 0',
    height: 1,
    background: 'lime'
  });
}

if (text.match(/CACHE|Load/)) {
  line.css({
    color: '#E1017B'
  });
}

  config.oauth_token        = "..."
  config.oauth_token_secret = "..."
end

UserStream.client.user do |status|
