Capture Git-Based Selfies with lolcommits
Summary of my bookmarked Github repositories from Feb 24th, 2017
lolcommits is a Ruby gem that allows software developers to take git-based selfies using their webcams. It captures an image every time a git commit is made and stores it in a directory with a short SHA. Originally created as a joke project, lolcommits has gained popularity and is now primarily maintained by @matthutchinson. It requires Ruby 2.3 or higher, a webcam, and optional dependencies such as ImageMagick and ffmpeg. With various command options, users can enable, disable, browse, and customize the capturing process. Additionally, there are plugins available to enhance the functionality, such as posting to social media or translating commit messages to lolspeak.
