Earthquake.config[:colors] = (31..36).to_a - [34]

Blue is excluded.

Desktop Notifications

To enable desktop notifications, install one of the following:

Call Earthquake.notify for desktop notification. You can try it by using the :eval command:

⚡ :eval notify 'Hello World!'

Plugin

~/.earthquake/plugin is the directory for plugins. At launch, Earthquake tries to load files under this directory. The block that is specified for Earthquake.init will be reloaded at any command line input.

Defining your commands

A command named 'foo':

Earthquake.init do
  command :foo do
    puts "foo!"
  end
end

Handling the command args:

Earthquake.init do
  command :hi do |m|
    puts "Hi #{m[1]}!"
  end
end

The 'm' is a MatchData.

Using regexp:

Earthquake.init do
  # Usage: :add 10 20
  command %r|^:add (\d+)\s+(\d+)|, :as => :add do |m|
    puts m[1].to_i + m[2].to_i
  end
end

Handling outputs

Keyword notifier:

Earthquake.init do
  output do |item|
    next unless item["_stream"]
    if item["text"] =~ /ruby/i
      notify "#{item["user"]["screen_name"]}: #{item["text"]}"
    end
  end
end

Favorite notifier:

Earthquake.init do
  output do |item|
    case item["event"]
    when "favorite"
      notify "[favorite] #{item["source"]["screen_name"]} => #{item["target"]["screen_name"]} : #{item["target_object"]["text"]}"
    end
  end
end

Defining filters for output

Filtering by keywords

Earthquake.init do
  output_filter do |item|
    if item["_stream"] && item["text"]
      item["text"] =~ /ruby/i
    else
      true
    end
  end
end

Defining completion

Earthquake.init do
  completion do |text|
    ['jugyo', 'earthquake', '#eqrb'].grep(/^#{Regexp.quote(text)}/)
  end
end

TODO

  • change the config dir by ARGV
  • spec
