# Tokens will be stored in a config file so you only need to input them once. guess-that-lang --token "XXX" # or -t # Get code from gists rather than repos. # Repos generally provide better code quality, but gists require less API calls. guess-that-lang --provider gists # or -p # Wait 5 seconds after showing the options before starting to reveal code. (Default: 1500) guess-that-lang --wait 5000 # or -w # Reveal lines in random order instead of top to bottom.
