Boom

Link: Boom

Boom is a command-line key-value store written by Zach Holman. If you don’t know what this is, you probably don’t need it. Still, I really love the installation instructions:

> > Hey, run this: > > > > `$ gem install boom` > > > > See? Now you can do this: > > > > `$ boom` > > > > Pretty easy. Like your mom. > >

I wish more software developers were brave enough to make ‘your mom’ jokes in their installation instructions.
