Lolcommits Hipchat

Gem Version Travis Build Status Test Coverage Code Climate

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 shares lolcommit images to a HipChat room, along with a randomized message with the commit SHA. Your lolcommit will appear like this (perhaps without the horse):




After installing the lolcommits gem, install this plugin with:

$ gem install lolcommits-hipchat

Visit to create a new API token with the 'Send Message' scope set. Then configure the plugin to enable and set options:

$ lolcommits --config -p hipchat
# set enabled to `true`
# enter your HipChat team name, API token and room (name or id)

That's it! The next lolcommit will be shared to your HipChat room. To disable, uninstall this gem or use:

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