mhname - check availability of Minehut server names
#!/bin/sh
#
# usage:
# mhname [names...]
# or
# mhname < names-list.txt
#
# requires:
# jq, curl
#
# mhname's output looks like this:
# Is 'servername' taken: true
#
# If arguments are passed to mhname, it will check each one for availability as
# a server name. Otherwise, it reads a list of files from stdin and checks each
# one for availability.
#
# Written by spitemim.
