HackerGo Usage

There are three commands, jobs, page, and random (so far).

The jobs command scrapes recent jobs from the Hacker-news website based on the additional arguments you provide

$ HackerGo jobs  <all | integer>

The all argument scrapes all jobs on the first page of the website. If you specify an integer less than 30 after specifying the page, you’ll get the first “integer” jobs from the website.

Here’s an example of the jobs command:

$ HackerGo jobs 5
