Project description


One line jokes for programmers (jokes as a service)


Install the pyjokes module with pip.

See the documentation for installation instructions.


Once installed, simply call pyjoke from the command line or add it to your .bashrc file to see a joke every time you open a terminal.

Use the -c flag to get jokes from a specific category. Options:

-c neutral [default] (neutral geek jokes)
-c chuck (Chuck Norris geek jokes)
-c all (all jokes)
-c twister (Tongue-twister)

You can also access the jokes in your own project by importing pyjokes and using the functions get_joke and get_jokes.
