Lolcommits Uploldz

Gem Version Travis Build Status Test Coverage Code Climate 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 plugin uploads each lolcommit to a remote server after capturing. You configure the plugin by setting a remote endpoint to handle the HTTP post request. The following params will be sent:

  • file - captured lolcommit image file
  • message - the commit message
  • repo - repository name e.g. mroth/lolcommits
  • sha - commit SHA
  • author_name - the commit author name
  • author_email - the commit author email address
  • key - optional key (string) from plugin config

You can also set an optional HTTP Basic Auth header (username and/or password).



After installing the lolcommits gem, install this plugin with:

$ gem install lolcommits-uploldz

Then configure to enable and set the remote endpoint:

$ lolcommits --config -p uploldz
# set enabled to `true`
# set the remote endpoint (must begin with http(s)://)
# optionally set a key (sent in params) and/or HTTP Basic Auth credentials

That's it! Provided the endpoint responds correctly, your next lolcommit will be uploaded to it. To disable use:

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