pure-bash-bible/README.md – book for doing things in bash without external tools

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/09/21

[WayBack] pure-bash-bible/README.md at master · dylanaraps/pure-bash-bible · GitHub:

The goal of this book is to document known and unknown methods of doing various tasks using only built-in bash features. Using the snippets from this bible can help remove unneeded dependencies from scripts and in most cases make them faster. I came across these tips and discovered a few while developing neofetchpxltrm and other smaller projects.

The snippets below are linted using shellcheck and tests have been written where applicable. Want to contribute? Read the CONTRIBUTING.md. It outlines how the unit tests work and what is required when adding snippets to the bible.

See something incorrectly described, buggy or outright wrong? Open an issue or send a pull request. If the bible is missing something, open an issue and a solution will be found.

TJoe’s personal favorite in form, function, and simplicity… paper plane!

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/09/21


TJoe’s personal favorite in form, function, and simplicity.

Joe Heche is completely right:

  1. Just look at the plane.
  2. Then try to imagine how far it will go.
  3. Now watch the video below.
  4. Then compare it to how to build the longest flying paper plane building videos and flight videos after that.

Isn’t the one on the right brilliant?

Thanks Joe!

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/09/20

After [WayBack] 20 years of Google: [WayBack] 20 things you didn’t know you could do with Search

  1. [WayBack] Fill your schedule with nearby events
    Example: night life near me
  2. [WayBack] Movie showtimes and tickets
    Example: showtimes or movies near me
  3. [WayBack] Recipe Search
    Example: curry recipe
  4. [Archive.is] Live sports scores
    Example: uefa scores
  5. [WayBack] Styling and shopping help from Google Images

    Example: none; fails outside the USA with for instance Amsterdam college
  8. [WayBack] Help with health questions
    Example: clinical depression
  9. [WayBack] Figure out who owes what 
    Example: tip calculator, but with keyboard only works out if you tab out of the fields
  10. [WayBack] Convert cash: If you’re heading out on a trip, here’s a tool that makes a ton of cents
    Example: 43 USD in EUR and 2 mebibyte in bytes (but does not give an integer result)

  15. [WayBack] Ask complex multi-part questions
    Example: which members of the bee gees died is too complex; how old is our prime minister gives a list of prime ministers, but how old is the pope works
  16. [WayBack] Search with an image
    Example: my own picture
  17. [WayBack] Check how to say massive numbers correctly
