This repository contains database of all quotes from the famous website bash.im as well as the API that allows self-hosting your own quotes website. All of this started in February 2022 when bash.im was shut down. Quotes were parsed from the web archive.
- Python 3.8+ (Python 3.11 is recommended)
- Git LFS for fetching the quotes DB
# Clone this repository and enter it: git clone https://git.darkn.space/Darkn/bash-fastapi.git cd bash-fastapi # Download the quotes.sqlite3 using Git LFS # and replace the pointer file with the actual database: git lfs pull # Configure virtualenv: python3 -m venv .venv # Activate virtualenv: . .venv/bin/activate # Install dependencies: python3 -m pip install -r requirements.txt # Start main.py python main.py
Q: How do I change the port on which API runs?
A: Default port is 8001, but you can change it inside of main.py by modifying those lines at the very end:
if __name__ == "__main__": uvicorn.run(app, port=8001, host="0.0.0.0")
Q: Why is quotes.sqlite3 so small and has no quotes inside of it after I cloned your repository?
A: You probably forgot to install and/or use Git LFS. Go to the repository directory and run following commands:
git lfs install git lfs fetch git lfs checkout
Q: Do you really have all quotes from bash.im?
A: As long as it was indexed by the web archive, it's there.
