whatismylocalip alias (actually more like whataremylocalips) and some sed links

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/01/10

Getting the local IP (actually IPs, but most hosts only have a single IP):

# OS X:
alias whatismylocalip='ifconfig | sed -En '\''s/127.0.0.1//;s/.*inet (addr:)?(([0-9]*\.){3}[0-9]*).*/\2/p'\'''
# Linux:
alias whatismylocalip='ip a | sed -En '\''s/127.0.0.1//;s/.*inet (addr:)?(([0-9]*\.){3}[0-9]*).*/\2/p'\'''

I got them via bash – How to I get the primary IP address of the local machine on Linux and OS X? – Stack Overflow

Mac OS X and BSD have ifconfig, but most Linux distributions don’t use ifconfig any more in favour of iproute2, so you use ip a (which is shorthand for ip address show) there.

Their output is similar enough for the sed to work, though. Which surprised be because I didn’t know about the -E option (it lacks in the manual Linux page but it is in the Mac OS X one) which enables POSIX extended regular expressions. In Linux this is documented as -r, but -E also works.

I learned this through the Sed – An Introduction and Tutorial which compares the various versions of sed which also explains about the -n doing no printing.

installing the joe terminal/console text editor on Mac OS X: brew to the rescue

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/10/07

The most recent versions of Joe don’t even build from stock in OS X any more and there are no direct installers for them.

But there are two most recent older versions that have installers, and a formula recent brew based HomeBrew installation:

  1. joe-3.7-0.pkg – rudix-snowleopard – JOE – Rudix: The hassle-free way to get Unix programs on Mac OS X – Google Project Hosting.
  2. PROJECT DETAIL for Joe’s Own Editor.
  3. Homebrew Formulas – Joe.

After experimenting for a while without brew preferring the first over second, I’ve installed the the third as:

  1. The first actually installs version 3.6, but has the syntax highlighting files installed in the correct place, so you get syntax highlighting.
  2. The second does install version 3.7, but since the syntax highlighting files are in the wrong place: you get no syntax highlighting.
  3. The brew formula has an up to date joe version 4.0 and installs the syntax highlighting in the right place: you get syntax highlighting.

Before making a choice, you might want to consider reading about joe versions in JOE – Joe’s own editor / … /NEWS.md.

Having a background partially in the Linux world, I tried building joe from source on my Mac following the steps at JOE – Joe’s own editor / Discussion / joe-editor-general:Mac binary for 3.3 does not run on OS/X 10.8. It failed because the Mercurial 3.8 branch required automake and autoconf which are not available on  just a Mac + Xcode. So I’m happy that others have bit the bullet and make a good HomeBrew build.

What makes HomeBrew so great is that it is based on a fully versioned git/ruby combination, allows for multiple Python versions, allows for binaries through bintray served bottles and has zillions (well, thousands) of installable formulae, all versioned.

Builds ChaCha20 version of openssl on Mac OS X static without dylib for use with testssl.sh

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/08/17

A while ago, testssl.sh [WayBack] needed Darwin binaries (for OS X): Supply Darwin binaries + install documentation · Issue #127 · drwetter/testssl.sh [WayBack]

So I created the small Bourne shell (sh) script below to deliver them.

It allows me to update these gists:

The build script itself is in a gist as well: https://gist.github.com/f4de3937630b87753133.git [WayBack]

It helped me to contribute to these testssl.sh issues:

Not all of these binaries are in https://github.com/drwetter/testssl.sh/tree/master/bin [WayBack] as it makes the testssl.sh repository too bloated. Some (including non-OSX builds made by others) are here:

Eventually the script might get merged into https://github.com/drwetter/testssl.sh/blob/master/utils/make-openssl.sh [WayBack] as there is a Darwin switch in this commit: https://github.com/drwetter/testssl.sh/commit/6efc3e90f52e5926b0853d3b2fb221b631dcf452 [WayBack]

Fix the OS X Finder not displaying the contents of specific folders | MacIssues

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/08/15

The culprit is usually the mds [WayBack] process (metadata server).

Simple command-line solution:

sudo killall mds

A more convoluted way with the Activity Monitor is in the link below.
