Post to GNUsocial / Quitter from command line

Let's write a simple one line bash script to post to GNU social // Quitter from terminal

Copy & paste into a terminal, then press enter

cat <<'EOF' >> ~/.bashrc
alias queet='function _queet() { echo -e status="$@" | curl -u user:password --data-binary @-; }; _queet'

Edit ~/.bashrc with your preferred editor and replace user:password with proper values and with the domain name of your GNUsocial instance.

Save it, then logout and login again.

From now, posting to the social network is as simple as

queet Hello all! I'm queeting from cli
