Simple script for sending information to beeminder from desktop?


#1

I need to send info from my computer to beeminder. Is there an example somewhere of a simple script or application that can do this?

There should be a general method of doing this so we don’t have to “roll our own” scripts every time.


#2

You can often do this in one single line with curl. You can see many examples using curl at http://api.beeminder.com/#beeminder-api-reference.

If you are looking for a desktop application and running Windows 10, you can use Nectar.

If you are looking to write a cross platform command line script, you can use cURL (which even works in Windows now), as suggested above.

No, Windows 7, but I have MinGW installed so I should be able to do it through that.


#5

You can always just download cURL: https://curl.haxx.se/download.html#Win64

Awesome, thanks!
