Lolcommits Tumblr

Gem Version Travis Build Status Test Coverage Maintainability Gem Dependency Status

lolcommits takes a snapshot with your webcam every time you git commit code, and archives a lolcat style image with it. Git blame has never been so much fun!

This is a simple plugin to post lolcommits to your Tumblr. Configure it with a Tumblr access token and secret (the plugin will guide you through this process).



After installing the lolcommits gem, install this plugin with:

$ gem install lolcommits-tumblr

Then configure to enable. If this is your first time setting up, you'll be asked to visit Tumblr to authenticate and allow access.

$ lolcommits --config -p tumblr
# set enabled to `true`
# You'll be asked to confirm access for this plugin at
# Click 'allow' then return to the console to set your Tumblr name
# Optionally set the plugin to auto-open each created Tumblr post

That's it! Your next lolcommit will automatically be posted to your Tumblr blog. To disable use:

$ lolcommits --config -p tumblr
# and set enabled to `false`
