Video streaming playlist?

Does anyone know of any github projects or even official apps/sites that let you make a playlist of different episodes from across different streaming platforms? So for example me and my friends want to watch the christmas episodes of all of our favorite shows but they are spread out across netflix, hulu, amazon prime, etc. Is there anything that lets us put them in a playlist? I know it sounds kind of wild, but sites like twoseven lead me to believe it’s possible.

Made a shell script that makes my github flow a lot easier

Now I can just run one command to create a remote github repository and initialize it locally too. No more web browser to create github repos then cloning locally.

It also does adding, committing, and pushing all at once in the -easyflow switch because I do that a lot.

I’ll attach a screenshot for how it works.

The terminal to the left is creating a git repo on github and locally.

The first argument is your github username, second new repo name (it makes sure you’re starting a repo that you don’t already have), third is the path to your access token from

It xclips it for easy copy and pasting. You only have to do this once when creating a new repo. Also setting up SSH is nice to do but that’s separate.

On the right is an example of the -easyflow option.

Here’s the source.

No unity stuff in version control

Hi, i created a repository with Source Tree at first and ignored the Library folder. Then instead of using sourcetree as a git gui i decided to use Git Kraken but whenever i revert to any commit, The code get’s reverted but the unity stuff doesn’t. Like if i created a cube in one commit and added 2 capsules in another commit, if i revert to the 1 cube commit, then the two capsules are still there! How do i make it work correctly?
