Ever wish you could keep tabs on your App.net stream but hate the thought of having one more client to check? What if you could keep up right from your terminal window?
---------- Rob Warner (@hoop33) (258) You I'm working on PM support for Wry this weekend :-) #wry ID: 5557218 -- 2013-05-11T12:04:10Z ----------
Wry is a command-line tool for Mac OS X 10.7+ that solves that problem by bringing App.net to the command line. Installing Wry couldn’t be easier especially if you’re using homebrew.
First run this to make sure everything is up to date.
$ brew doctor
Next, simply type:
$ brew install wry
In seconds you’ll have Wry installed and can add authorization
$ wry authorize
Copy and paste your authorization code from the App.net website and you’re done. Yes, it’s that simple. You can also download and install the zip file yourself.
Once it’s installed, type
wry to see a list of supported commands.
The wry commands are: authorize Authorize with App.net block Block a user commands List available commands delete Delete a post download Download a file find Finds users follow Follow a user followers List the users following a user following List the users a user is following global Display the global stream help Display help ls Get a file listing mentions Display the mentions for a user mute Mute a user muted List the users that a user has muted post Create a post posts Display a user's posts read Read a post replies Display the replies to a post reply Reply to a post repost Repost a post search Search for hashtag star Star a post stream Display the current user's stream unblock Unblock a user unfollow Unfollow a user unified Display the current user's unified stream unmute Unmute a user upload Upload a file user Display information about a user users Manage the users you've authorized on this computer version Display version information
The list of commands supported by Wry is impressive. After reaching out to Rob, to let him know how much I enjoyed using it, he told me that private messaging and patter room support was released with version 1.5. Just an added bonus to an already great tool.
