A random scripture passage notification via growl

Published on 08/11/10

If you are like me (a follower of Christ who tries to become a better Christian every day) then you are looking for ways for God’s Word (also know as the Bible) to permeate your life more and more. I thought it would be kind of cool if I could create a script that would randomly display a random verse from the Bible on my macbook.

I found a web page that will generate a random scripture passage. So I used ruby and growl (on OSX) to create a script and cron to run it periodically. The script requires a couple gems to run, but if you know what you are doing it should be pretty easy to set up. The only gatcha would be to set up growl to allow incoming network notifications.
