I've got to remember this marketing spin. "A curl to an http endpoint with a plethora of parameters" == Only 1 line of code!



It's similar to many jQuery plugins I've seen. "LOOK, you can do all this with one line of code!"

    $("#mydiv").someplugin();
But then they show all the HTML adjustments you have to make to get the plugin functioning. Just tell me straight!

But, credit to the author, I always like seeing how people use the command line to accomplish things. One day, I'd like to make a "get_subs" command that orders Jimmy Johns for me.


We (Balanced - YC W11) did the same thing :/. We'll I guess we called it a single curl command not a single line of code:
