An ncurses interface for google voice SMS messaging.
tchat is an ncurses based interface to google voice. It uses pygooglevoice (and thus polling and screen scraping) to interface with google voice. It presents an interface similar to chat clients (e.g. pidgin, mcabber), allowing you to "chat" via text messages. It uses a password stored in python keyring. Specifically, it requires that the password for the 'gmail' service and your supplied username (currently a constant in tchat.py) be your password to login. You can do this by booting up python: tycho@mittens:~$ python Python 2.6.5 (r265:79063, Apr 16 2010, 13:57:41) [GCC 4.4.3] on linux2 Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information. >>> import keyring >>> keyring.set_password("gmail", "firstname.lastname@example.org", "secret") tchat displays only the most recent "conversation". It seems that google voice resets these every 497 messages; tchat should seamlessly move on to the next conversation, so you don't miss a beat.
