Build Status

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 (for Mac OS X)

You'll need imagesnap and imagemagick installed. Homebrew makes this easy. Simply do:

brew install imagemagick
brew install imagesnap

This will take care of the non-Ruby dependencies. Then 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:

lolcommits --enable

Likewise, you can disable it via lolcommits --disable. For a full list of options, you can do lolcommits --help.

Installation (for Linux)

Install dependencies using your package manager of choice, for example in Ubuntu:

sudo apt-get install mplayer imagemagick libmagick9-dev

Then install the lolcommits gem:

gem install lolcommits

Then you can lolcommits --enable in any git repo as above.

Sample images

Please add your own lolcommit to these samples! Just fork this repo, add it to this section of the README, and send me a pull request.
