Hungry for some pizza, but can’t stand all that pesky human interaction you have to put up with ordering it on the phone? Pizza Party is your answer:

Pizza Party is a free text based software package for ordering pizza, or for throwing pizza parties.

Pizza Party has many features to make ordering pizza easy:

* Can order pizza with only a few keystrokes.
* Can save pizza preferences.
* Can use batch files for ordering many pizzas.
* Has easy to use flags for ordering different toppings.
* Runs on most UNIX-like operating systems.
* Supports most currently popular topings like “mushrooms”, and “pepperoni”!
* Unattended / background operation.
* Pizza Party is distributed under the GNU General Public License.

Since it’s released under the GPL, does that mean I have to share my pizza too?

  1. Out of curiosity, I downloaded it and looked at the source. It’s a very well-written Perl script. It essentially makes a series of HTTP calls to dominos.quickorder.com using LWP::UserAgent.

    I don’t think this is a Web service API. I think they’re screen-scraping and posting blind. That’s a whole lotta work for the result, I think.

  2. I guess I’ll still have to use the phone…

    “Whoops! The local Domino’s Pizza store serving your zip code is not currently available for on-line internet ordering via QuikOrder.com.”
