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

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/09/21

[WayBack] pure-bash-bible/ 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 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.

Interesting tool:

I wrote a program to clean up scans of handwritten notes while simultaneously reducing file size.

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?
