Each day at Geeklist we work to make life as a developer just a little bit better. We know most of our lives spread into Facebook where our work and personal lives blend together into a balancing act. But it’s not balanced if you consider the amount of time you spend coding. Now, for the first time ever we bring you Code Commits from Github announced straight into the Facebook Open Graph via Geeklist. (See the details on our Facebook integration in a great post by our Sr. Software Engineer, Jon Keating)
Now, to show you how this works, here is Facebook Partner Engineer, David Pio, doing the very first test… let’s follow it through:
Here David pushes to his ‘Batchy' repo in Github (which he has linked to Geeklist):
it posts his ‘code pages' on Geeklist and in the feed:
then the magic happens…it also shows up in his and his friends Facebook activity stream, like here in Christian’s Facebook activity stream:
Even better, I don’t have David in my FB account but I got it in my stream when Christian commented on it:
With the world run on technology, our lives living in our mobile devices, laptops and inside the Facebook Open Graph… now our family and friends can be updated in real-time on cool work we are doing, the moment we do it right in their Facebook stream. What’s next?! High-Five’ing the commits in the Facebook stream and it posting back into Geeklist? Stay tuned as Geeklist makes geeks lives better and better… because Geeks rule the world!
Oh, and in case you were buried under a rock and didn’t catch the ‘Fuckchop’ story we broke, check out Geeklist in The Next Web and Huffington Post this past Monday!
