There is a rather upcoming trend of githubbers maintaining an ama repo. It is a single repository where anyone in the world can ask you anything. I find it awesome in that you can learn from inspiring people without having to buy an over-priced ticket to some damn talk where you do not even get to ask a question. The concept is rich.
But the one thing that sucks is browsing the questions. For people like me using a slow machine with a slow network connection (if you want to build fast applications, use a slow computer :smile:) prefer terminal applications rather than fancy but memory-consuming Chrome-like browsers.
So I spent a day, learning about blessed, a terminal interface API for Node.js and ended up building issue-explorer. It is a terminal application that lets you traverse Github issues from your terminal.
Well, it is not shiny yet, but it works!
$ npm install issue-explorer --global
Now to visit the patient-zero (original) AMA:
$ issue-explorer all sindresorhus/ama
You can still use it in your day-to-day programming. Say you are in a repository and you want to see the open issues:
$ issue-explorer open
Now that makes life simpler!
I am continuously making the application better. Go give the repository a star to keep awake at night! Also you will find more how-to instructions there. So do you think it is useful?
