grep for GroupMe
Grep for GroupMe
For something similar that runs in the browser, take a look at https://www.searchme.co/ instead.
Do you wish GroupMe had a search function? Me too. That's why I wrote GrepMe, a command line search tool for GroupMe that's featureful and easy to use.
pip install grepme
- Create your login token on https://dev.groupme.com/applications -> Create Application None of the info there is used in grepme, you can give garbage values.
- Run grepme. You should be prompted for your login token.
If you type your token wrong, you can use
-D and grepme will prompt you again,
grepme -D some_text
- Search case-insensitive for 'school':
grepme -i school
- Show every message from every group you're in:
- Search in a specific group:
grepme --group USCCyber api
- Filter by date:
grepme -d '.*' | grep 2018
- Search by user:
grepme -u Joshua '.*'
- Show all available groups:
- Show version:
- Show messages newer than 1 week:
grepme --json '.*' | jq -r "select(.created_at > $(date -d '1 week ago' +%s)) | .text"
- Show at most 10 messages:
grepme --json '.*' | head -n 10 | jq -r '.name, .text'

$ grepme -i swear --group 'ACM$' Huиter Damroи: I work in the IBM building but I can meet you at Swearingen or anywhere. Matthew Clapp: Is anybody in Swearingen? ℬℜΔƉѰ: Can someone confirm that the Airport monitors in Swearingen have a Code-a-thon announcement? Justin Baum: Hey does anyone know who I should email so my Carolina Card can get me into Swearingen? ^C
GrepMe uses configparse for configuration,
see its documentation for details. For example, I use the following configuration
~/.config/grepme.toml, which searches only in 'ACM' by default:
group = "^ACM$"
