Computing quotes on the command line

Project Description
csq: computing quotes on the command line


If you're feeling bereft of inspiration, hook this tiny CLI tool into
your work flow and start feeling smarter instantly! Over 30 amazing
humans in computing with ~1000 quotes.

Using `pip <>`__, it's as
simple as:


pip install csq



csq quote
csq -h
csq -v


You can add this to a ``.bashrc``, ``.zshrc``, or even drop it into a
``post-commit`` in your ``.git/hooks/`` folder.


This tool has been tested to run with ``python 2.7`` and ``python 3.4``.


More quotes will be added as I find them. However, if you feel that
there are some missing quotes (which there definitely are!), *please*
feel free to `make a pull request <>`__,
you can find the current lists of quotes
`here <>`__. Go
ahead and `fork this
repository <>`__!

This tool is tested to run on ``python-2.7`` and ``python-3.4``, so you
will need those interpreters installed to run the tests with
`tox <>`__.


git clone<your-username>/csq
cd csq && mkvirtualenv csq-dev
pip install -r requirements.txt
pip install -e . # install csq locally
tox # run the tests


Please see my `personal website <>`__.


Please see `LICENSE.txt <>`__
