For a few weekends now I've been working on a little side project to help take back control of my contacts, FarleyFile, named for Eisenhower's practice of keeping personal files on people he knew. It's a command line tool implemented in Python because I've been itching to build one. And who doesn't like command line tools? Am I right or am I right? Since this weekend I free suddenly I had some extra time. This release is just 0.1.0 because it's still pretty janky and only implements imports from Github and Twitter. But I'm happy to accept contributions!!!
To get an idea of some of the functionality,
$ farley --help Usage: farley [OPTIONS] COMMAND [ARGS]... Options: --help Show this message and exit. Commands: detail Lists all the attributes of a given user export Exports all the connections to a single file github Imports users you are following from Github list Lists all your connections person Commands for interacting with a person record search Lists all the connections matching a given search term twitter WIP - imports Twitter connections
For example, if you're interested in searching for users after importing them from a social media platform the output will look something like:
$ farley search --name=smith FarleyFile processing... reading environment variables... Searching People 76 garren smith 756 David Smith 25 Arfon Smith 14 Nate Smith 675 Jared Smith 985 Sarah Lavender Smith
Which, by the way, if you're also into running like me I highly recommend checking out the blog of that last one.
