View igliker.rb
# igliker.rb - An Instagram mass list liker by pet'rc
# ---------------------------------------------------
#
# Takes a list of accounts and likes the latest post
# on each by remote controlling a Firefox instance.
#
# This is quite technical to use and requires you have Ruby
# installed (such as on macOS), as well as Firefox, and
# be happy using the terminal.
#
View vinescrape.rb
# vinescrape.rb goes through an account's Vines and downloads them, skipping revines
# I had to write it because I didn't get notified of the download deadline and
# with no email address on their site, it wouldn't let me get my archive..
# so I came up with this approach instead :-D
#
# To use, just change the VINE_USER_ID string below to the long set of digits that makes up YOUR Vine ID
# Then ruby vinescrape.rb
# Works fine with no dependencies on Ruby 2.4 on OS X, should work fine elsewhere too
VINE_USER_ID = "970482265149054976"
View inboxcheck.rb
# inboxcheck.rb monitors a Gmail account for new mails and returns
# info (as JSON) about the first new mail from a specified address
#
# This is used to see if our newsletter testing mails arrive at
# Gmail and then if they go into spam, promotions or the normal inbox.
#
# To use or work on this script for yourself, follow steps 1 and 2 at
# https://developers.google.com/gmail/api/quickstart/ruby to get set
# up with the Google API stuff. Make sure client_secret.json ends up
# in the same directory as this script, then you're good to go.
