vain: Check GitHub user stats from the command line

With a name reminiscent of Ego, the at-a-glance traffic/followers/subscribers checker for iPad and iPhone, comes vain, the GitHub followers/watchers/forks checker for the command line from John Crepezzi.

Vain is distributed as a Ruby gem:

gem install vain

You can then get the skinny on any GitHub user with vain <username>. Normally we include example terminal output in a <code> block on this blog, but since vain has such great terminal color support, a screenshot is in order:


You might know John from his excellent ice_cube gem, an amazing recurring date library for Ruby that supports iCal, YAML, and English.
