Creating GitHub Releases From the Command Line

I grew tired of having to navigate GitHub’s webpages in order to create releases on my repositories, so I decided to automate the process. It started as an 80 line bash script specifically for my last project, shshare, but then I got the itch to generalize it and release it to the public. I also wanted a way to show off my C knowledge on my GitHub profile, so hubrelease was born.

Amendment 2020-08-19 At the time I did this, I was careless and ignorant regarding the legal and ethical implications of my actions. I considered taking this post down, but decided to leave it up for transparency’s sake. You should never access a computer that you are not authorized to, even if you think it’s being used for a malicious purpose.

First AUR Package

Today marks the first time I’ve publicly released something since Quack.Net, which was almost 2 years ago. I am proud to present: shshare! What? shshare is a shell script (technically two) that can capture a screenshot or screen recording and automatically upload it to a destination of the user’s choosing. It’s contained in two files: shshare - the core script that handles options and the capturing of data, and uploader.sh, a script intended to be modified by the user that provides the functionality of taking that data to its final destination.
