Want to know who and when pushed latests changes to your company's repo?

Want to know who started following something interesting?

Want to see latests gists created by someone you follow?

Want to stop using your browser for checking that stuff?

Want to get notified about it with you favorite desktop notification tool?

Use hubboard!

Hubboard v0.2


Hubboard was created because of two reasons:

  • I'm using GitHub for at least 8 hours everyday and I want to stay informed on what's going on
  • I wanted to see whether I can create a non-trivial app in Ruby using wxRuby

How to make it work?


If you have a Mac you can just grab the package from Downloads (you'll need Growl as well for the notifications).

You can also:

  • clone the repo
  • do: rake osx:get_dependencies
  • and finally: rake osx:run


Linux is a bit tricky - recent changes to wxWidgets packages made wxRuby gem unusable - see this issue for details

However previous Ubuntu version (10.4 - Lucid) is perfectly fine, you'll be able to run Hubboard after installing some dependencies (wxbase, libwxgtk-2.8-{0,dev})

Notifications support is underway.

Microsoft ® Windows ™

I haven't checked Ms Windows - if someone's eager to test it out that would be splendid!

Contributing and stuff

There's a set of Rake tasks which will help you out. rake -T for help.

Usual rules: fork, feature branch, pull request. Thanks!

  • once Linux version works - add support for notifications
  • Gist support (CRUD)
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
