In this one shot wonder, I give a quick rundown of the HelpMe command line client, for use with the recently upgraded NeuroStars.org Discourse board! This means that you can post a question to Discourse without leaving your command line, including:
- A whitelisted environment
- A terminal recording
- A title and description of your issue
And all gets uploaded without needing to leave the command line, and without you needing to worry about copy pasting or taking a screen shot.
And without further adieu… here is the unfortunate result of me struggle-bussing with video editing software:
If you want to install locally:
pip install helpme[discourse]
or on your cluster, where you are just a tiny, lacking permissions user:
pip install helpme[discourse] --user
or shell into a Docker container on your local machine to generate the token instead:
docker run -it --entrypoint bash vanessa/helpme
And remember, for the Docker container you need to save the discourse token that is generated in your (root’s) home:
/root/.helpme/helpme.cfg -> $HOME/helpme.cfg
My computer was way low on memory so it pooped out in several spots, and I tried to either edit out or fill in with the missing words. Hey, I say it’s beautiful in its imperfection :) I’m too stubborn to do a take two so this is what we are left with :)
For more details (help!), see the repository, and if you run into any issues please post an issue.
