@fribbledom fuck yes thank you for this I've been looking for one for note-taking
@fribbledom I'm going to have to give that a good look. I keep meaning to make a post about how much I really like markdown right now :)
Try it out 😆
We're working on making life on the command-line just a bit more awesome. News to be shared soon!
Bad timing, just upgrading. Try again in 5 minutes please 💪
@fribbledom I LOVE IT
@fribbledom Baby Linux user question
I use Ubuntu so I have to use the .tar.gz release. But, I do not know what I am suppose to do with it.
How do I connect the contents of that archive to my shell so I can run it?
You could try and just install the debian package, it should work on Ubuntu, too.
For the .tar.gz, simply extract its contents (not unlike a ZIP archive): it contains one binary file called `glow` which you can simply put in /usr/local/bin or /usr/bin to make it globally available in your shell.
@fribbledom Looks like you don't have a .deb for x86_64?
I will extract it there. Thank you
@fribbledom This is exactly what I needed. Thank you!
@fribbledom This is glorious.
@fribbledom that looks really nice. 😲
@fribbledom oh I am SO into this
@fribbledom Works great! Always wanted something like this. 👍
@fribbledom Ahhhh! Can't wait to take this for a spin.
@fribbledom I like it. Thank you very much for taking the time to develop glow!
Is it possible to pipe the output in less and keep the colors?
@fribbledom I found a solution using `unbuffer` (see this post: https://superuser.com/a/1132741). The command looks like this `unbuffer glow Readme.md | less`. Still I think it would be great if it would be possible with a command line flag in glow such that the command `glow --some-flag | less` would preserve the colors.
If you specify a style manually, it will stick to that, e.g.:
glow -s dark | less -r
@fribbledom Great! Thanks for the tip. 🎉
@fribbledom Nice! I'll have to try this later today.
We'll try to add FreeBSD builds to the next release!
@fribbledom Would you consider adding a port so it's easier to install and get updates? I would also looked into it, have written a few ports so far and some Go-based ebuilds for Gentoo. I just don't know what FreeBSD offers for Go so far. I can happily tell that I could go get and build glow from source. :)
Annnddd... submitted! https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=242840 -- now we wait. 👍
https://svnweb.freebsd.org/ports?view=revision&revision=520738 -- that was rather quick, but it's now merged. :)
@fribbledom It is beautiful 😭
Thanks for sharing!
@fribbledom installing........ looks super nice!
