New bot idea: echo <inspirational-quote> | cowsay | lolcat
@skunksarebetter I was thinking of fortune, but something a little bit more focused on motivation/inspiration. Can one crowdsource inspirational quotes?
@brandon I think fortune has a fortune pack for that. I don't know what it is though, it might be embedded in another pack. Either way I swear I remember fortune giving me inspirational stuff.
@skunksarebetter hmm, I found some custom packs
@brandon fortune | cowsay | lolcat | figlet | base64 | rot13
@brandon poor man's /dev/random 😁
@brandon you can use quotes.com to grab quotes from an api
@EclecticEclipse now we're talking lol. The problem is I have to convert it to an image for the bot to have the lolcat formatting
Perhaps aview has another library to do the opposite? I'm also sure there has to be a web app that takes text and turns it into a fancy font/image... Not sure what but hey.
@brandon my .bashrc includes the line ‘verse |cowsay |lolcat’
You could also use fortune.
