stars

you're so vain / you probably think these stars are about you

why

Stars are a global currency. You tweet something, you write something, you otherwise put yourself out there. Sure, you feel a warm sense of accomplishment when you do this, but how do you really know if the people like you?

FUCKING STARS, THAT'S HOW

stars is a command-line client to check your precious stars at fine establishments like Twitter (via the exquisite Favstar) and Convore. More services will be added as they get added.

how

Install with gem install stars, then do a quick stars, fill in your username for your service, and let it do its sultry magic. This is me lately:

BONUS ROUND

Plopped a whopper of a comparison on Convore between Python's whitespacing and the piddly lawyer in Jurassic Park, and want to see the results right now, dammit??!??!?!?!? Have no fear! Check your service stars directly with stars <service>:

stars convore

whip it out

stars is kind of a silly little project. It's not as well-tested or well-documented as I'd like, but so it goes. Fork, send me a pull request, and we'll all be friends.

who

@holman did this. I look great in a Speedo.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
