For quite some time I've been learning node and working on this small project.
I've written posts in the same regards previously, so if you haven't checked them out, here are they.
The problem statement was simple, to find out if your favorite username was available on as many websites in an instant.
There were already a couple of web apps available for the same purpose, but still, I felt the need to have a command line app for it. Makes things easier! :-)
Additionally, using the CLI you can query the list of all supported web apps, and check your favorite username availability on all or on a particular website.
The backend is powered by java and spring-boot(refer to the second previous post) and the CLI interface is powered by commander-js and node.
Here's the GitHub repo :
Check Username availability across 140+ websites instantly
Very often while registering to new websites we try to keep the same username across all the websites. Sometimes the username is available and sometimes it’s not. :(
I created a simple tool using which you can instantly find out if your favorite username is available or not on over 140+ websites.
Use npm to install username.
npm i unique-username -g //-g to install the project globally
Check the availability of a particular username across all 140+ websites.
username u <your_username>
Check the availability of a particular username on a particular website.
username d <serviceName> <your_username>
Get the list of all supported services
username u --help
