git + webcam = lol
Takes a snapshot with your Mac's built-in iSight/FaceTime webcam (or any working webcam on Linux) every time you git commit code, and archives a lolcat style image with it.
By default, the lolimages are stored by a Github style short SHA in a
~/.lolcommits directory created for you.
Installation (Mac OS X)
You'll need ImageMagick installed. Homebrew makes this easy. Simply do:
brew install imagemagick --from-source
Then simply do:
[sudo] gem install lolcommits
(If you're using rvm or something like that, you can/should probably omit the sudo, but the default MacOSX Ruby install is dumb and requires it.)
You're all set! To enable lolcommits for a git repo, go to the base directory of the repository, and run:
Likewise, you can disable it via
lolcommits --disable. For a full list of options, you can do
Install dependencies using your package manager of choice, for example in Ubuntu:
sudo apt-get install mplayer imagemagick libmagickwand-dev
On Fedora, enable the rpmfusion repository (for mplayer) and run:
sudo yum install ImageMagick ImageMagick-devel mplayer
Then install the lolcommits gem:
gem install lolcommits
Then you can
lolcommits --enable in any git repo as above.
See the wiki page for Installing on Windows.
Please add your own lolcommit! Add to the People Using Lolcommits page on the Wiki.
