This is the command line client for nubs (rhymes with "tubs"); a web app that can receive and display output you pipe into it from the command line. It's like being able to pipe stdout to a URL, which you and whoever else can view updating in realtime in the browser. Here's a blog post about it.
npm install nubs-cli && npm link nubs-cli or
npm install -g nubs-cli
pipe stdout to a webpage
tail -f /var/log/syslog | nubs http://nubs.narf.io/o/example
then go to: http://nubs.narf.io/o/example to view the output of your syslog
- detect when server goes down and attempt reconnects
