Mars Watch Command Line

Inspired by by perennial iOS hacker Steve T-S‘s quest to make Lights Off available for every platform possible. I created a Swift command line app that runs Mars Watch in the Mac terminal.

If you’d like to compile yourself, source code is included with the rest of the Mars Watch repo. If you’re after the binary thats on GitHub too (direct download - if using Safari you’ll need to remove the extension and chmod +x it, I could figure out a better way to deliver this, but…)
