Create own (local) repository of StackOverflow favorites (only for Linux).

pip install my-repo-calexandru2018==0.1.31



my-repo will locally store Stackoverflow answers, comments, ratings and personal keywords of your favorite marked questions. Only for Linux.

The idea with my-repo is so that you can save all of your favorite stackoverflow questions locally on your computer. The idea came when I was travelling by plane.

Sometimes when we (developers) travel, we might not have access to internet. At that moment we end up wishing that we somehow could have saved some of those stackoverflow favorites in our browser, just so that we could use them later. We all know that many of the Stackoverflow questions/answers are great for our development as software developers, so that is why I wanted to do something like this. So that I could work whenever and wherever I am.
