The new search and edit features in Ayadn.
Search hashtags and word(s) in posts
Ayadn already has a hashtag search, and a simple word(s) search.
ayadn -t teamappdiction
ayadn search godzilla 98
Search in messages, including PMs
You can now search for WORD(S) in the messages of a channel, for example all PMs between you and @username.
You have to specify a channel id (or an alias).
ayadn search --messages 24573 'meet me at
ayadn search --messages my_alias 'meet me at
If you don’t know what are your subscribed channels ids, discover them with
ayadn -ch, then you can also set aliases with
ayadn -A create 24573 my_alias to remember the names easily.
Look for users
Look for App.net users by searching WORD(S) in their bio/description.
ayadn search --users coffee food
Returns a detailed view of each user’s profile and informations.
Search for App.net channels by searching WORD(S) in their description.
ayadn search --channels podcast ios
(This one operation may sometimes be long to execute if there’s a lot of results.)
If the channel (let’s say 24573) is public, you can read its messages with
ayadn -ms 24573 or
ayadn -ms my_alias.
Writing a post or a message with Ayadn supports a few common Unix shorcuts.
While answering or posting, with
ayadn -R post_id or
ayadn -W, you can hit:
CTRL+A to go to the beginning of the current line
CTRL+E to go to the end of the current line
CTRL+U to clear the line before the cursor position
CTRL+K to clear the line after the cursor position
CTRL+W to delete the word before the cursor
One more thing: it’s not actually useful… but you can auto-complete paths with the TAB key while writing! ;)
