get-shit-done

get-shit-done is an easy to use command line program that blocks websites known to distract us from our work.

After cloning this repository, put it in your $PATH and ensure it is executable.

Execute it as root because it modifies your hosts file and restarts your network daemon.

To get-shit-done

$ sudo get-shit-done work

To no longer get-shit-done

$ sudo get-shit-done play

$siteList

Add or remove elements of this array for sites to block or unblock.

~/.config/get-shit-done.ini

Appends additional sites to block. Duplicates will be removed, and www is prepended.

sites = foo.com, bar.com, baz.com

$restartNetworkingCommand

Update this variable with the path to your network daemon along with any parameters needed to restart it.

$hostsFile

Update this variable to point to the location of your hosts file. Make sure it is an absolute path.

It's amazing how fast this repository has grown, I had never expected a single link on Hacker News would have caused that! I love it.

I'd really love if anyone wanted to follow some of my other repositories, including jolt or dbmigrator. I think both are promising projects and I know I could use some help on them.

Thanks!
