bash command-line tumblr client
I’ve been looking for a command-line client for tumblr. I could only find a ruby one, and sadly it gave a trail of errors starting with:
F, [2009-12-28T18:34:18.630749 #75034] FATAL — : uninitialized constant Tumblr::Account::API (NameError)
/opt/local/lib/ruby1.9/gems/1.9.1/gems/tumblr-2.2.0/lib/tumblr.rb:43:in `block in ’
Could be a version or dependency broken issue. Then I found a bash example, and had a bash script working in minutes that does posts, quotes, links, deleting, reading and editing. If anyone wants it, it’s here:
I’m still not clear what problem tumblr solves, that blogs or live-journal did not.
How is it different from blogging?
