A new Ayadn update has landed on the App.net planet!
With 1.7.0, you can embed videos (Youtube, Vimeo), force view blacklisted/muted/blocked users, and many other things.
Embed online videos
You can embed a Youtube or a Vimeo video with the option
-V when posting.
-Y option for Youtube or
-V for Vimeo at the end of the command, followed by the video URL.
It works with all posting commands:
send to channel).
ayadn -P wave function -Y https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ei8CFin00PY ayadn -P Elixir -V http://vimeo.com/103927232 ayadn -W -Y https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ei8CFin00PY ayadn -R 23362460 -V http://vimeo.com/103927232 ayadn pm @ericd -Y https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ei8CFin00PY
Unfortunately, very few App.net clients recognize the video embedding metadata.
So maybe you should include the video URL in the text body anyway, for better compatibility.
Embed movie poster
You can embed a movie poster, from its title, in a normal post, with option
This is compatible with other options, eg embedding other images.
Warning: contrary to the
movie command introduced in Ayadn 1.6.0, this option doesn’t check with the user if the movie is valid. The poster is retrieved from IMDb and is automatically embedded in the post.
ayadn -P "I'll be back" -M terminator ayadn -W -M truman show ayadn -R 12323454 -M "C.H.U.D" ayadn -W -M good morning vietnam -E ~/Pics/sad_face.jpg
You can force the display of blacklisted/muted/blocked user’s posts with option
ayadn -gl -f ayadn -gl -s -f ayadn -ui @spammer -f ayadn -up -f @spammer
Differences will occur due to ADN policy:
Global stream: temporarily disables you user token (so your muted/blocked preferences don’t apply), the NiceRank filter, and the Blacklist databases
User’s posts and Post infos: temporarily disables you user token and the Blacklist databases
Other streams, search, tags: temporarily disables the Blacklist databases
Shortcut for embedding a picture
The option to embed an image in a post is now
It was previously
-e but this was a mistake (it could have conflicted with the extract links option).
I try to maintain a simple logic for Ayadn command shortcuts: shortcuts for active (posting, modifying) commands are uppercase, shortcuts for passive commands (list, infos) are lowercase.
Scroll spinning wheel
The terminal cursor is now hidden when the scroll spinning wheel is displayed.
mark command (bookmark a conversation) had a problem with the title arguments, it has been fixed.
ayadn mark add 12323454 cool convo about stuff
I also fixed the previous fix which introduced a little bug (sigh).
Also fixed: the value displayed when setting NiceRank options.
It doesn’t show when using Ayadn, but I’ve reworked a lot of code for this release.
Ayadn is now easier to maintain, and some ugly code has even been transformed into dancing rainbow unicorns.
Q: What’s the future of Ayadn?
A: As long as App.net lives, Ayadn will be maintained and updated.
Q: What if App.net closes its doors?
A: Ayadn should be able to connect to alternative APIs that are not-so-secretely currently being developed.
Q: Shut up and take my money!
