Super quick start guide to fluidinfo
Sun Jun 17, 2012
This is a quick and dirty guide to getting started with fish, the command line tool for fulidinfo. I did it by setting up a virtualenv, as I find it a lot easier to manage python dependancies that way.
Setup a virtualenv:
% mkvirtual env fi
Open the virtual env session:
% workon fi
% pip install httplib2
% pip install readline
Get fish, you can either get it from github and install from source, last time I checked that was:
% git clone https://github.com/njr0/fish"
or you can just go ahead and:
% pip install fish
Create a credentials file:
% touch ~/.fluidinfocredentials
Put your credentials in ~/.fluidinfocredentials as a simple two liner, username, then password. If you signed in to fluidinfo with your twitter handle then you will need to create a password for your account, you can do this by going to the “Set password” option under your username in the web interface.
% fish This is fish version 4.34. Synchronizing . . . Nothing to sync from Fluidinfo synchronized. >
