A simple script to print random motivational quotes. Highly influenced by linux command fortune.
- Colored Output
git python 3x
$ git clone https://github.com/mubaris/motivate.git $ cd motivate/motivate $ sudo ./install.sh $ source ~/.bashrc
zsh users should replace
If you have no root priviledge, install in this way:
$ git clone https://github.com/mubaris/motivate.git $ cd motivate $ ln -s $PWD/motivate/motivate.py moti $ ln -s $PWD/dummy.sh mmoti $ export PATH=$PWD:$PATH $ # echo 'export PATH=$PWD:$PATH' >> ~/.bashrc
Later you can run by calling
moti (a single run) or
mmoti (keep running until you break it).
After doing so, I found that python 2.x is enough to run this script.
- Make sure you have Python3 on your path.
- Clone the repository
git clone https://github.com/mubaris/motivate.git.
- Add the path to your local clone to your system path.
py -3 motivate.pyfrom the command prompt.

The most popular way to contribute is adding new quotes. You do it by adding next JSON file in
motivate/data/ directory. The rule is 20 quotes per file.
Before you submit your new JSON file, it is helpful to validate your file at this website to make sure it is formatly correct.
