Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

I wonder, is it legal to have Googlebot as a user agent?

Never gave that much thought. Report yourself as a browser if you wish. User agent isn't everything anyway. You can still be fingerprinted to what you probably are even with a fake user agent. It will get you a page made for a specific platform if the website serves up pages like that. If you want a page with .m3u8 info then a page for an iphone will have that, the windows page may not.

https://amiunique.org

Got my browser user agent set to Win 10 Firefox 56
https://panopticlick.eff.org
Knows that I am a linux box.

Since you ask about user agent, and this is a scripting thread

If you want to check what your scripts/browsers are reporting then:

netcat -l -p 8000 -v
or
ncat -k -l -p 8000 -v

Then open web browser or script to http://127.0.0.1:8000
And read your UA in the netcat terminal.
Or just go to http://ipchicken.com

And there is a good example. Set you user agent to googlebot and

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

Read-only mode for Vim:

vim -RM <filename>

Vim is my favorite text editor. I love the keyboard controls and the syntax highlighting, so naturally I also want to use it as a pager somewhat, to read text files. At home I have "vimpager" installed and it's great. But there are many Linux computers I deal with on a daily basis where vimpager is just not available.

First I learned about "-R". Read-only mode! Perfect! ...until I accidentally bumped a key and found out, it's not truly read-only mode. I can still make changes to the text file, and I can even save it with a ":w!" command. Lame.

So then I learned about "-M". No modify mode! That's what I was looking for. ...until I tried to edit a file in a new instance of Vim that I was already viewing in another terminal. Turns out it still created a hidden "dot" file to prevent editing, even though it couldn't be edited.

I was in despair. Was there really a feature that Vim DIDN'T have??

But THEN, I just recently realized that I can combine the two!

So now I get the "no hidden lock dot file" feature from "-R" and the "no modify" feature from "-M". Just what I needed. cool

I liked vimpager too.  Until I read it's code.

Then I learned I could do the same with a trivial custom vimrc, so now I have this:

export MANPAGER='col -b | vim -u ~/.vimmanrc --not-a-term -'

(note to BASH users, this will not work for you without an extra subshell: e.g. '/bin/bash -c "col -b | ..."')
And the meat of .vimmanrc (minus some personal touches)

noremap q :q!
syntax on
set ft=man
set ts=8
set nomod
set noma

And you could have a general (non man) pager with just `vim -u ~/.vimmanrc`.

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

I've been using this script that, combined with a crontab job, checks the battery level and notifies the user through libnotify. I tried to improve it so that it doesn't dumb things such as yelling "Battery is low!" even if the AC is plugged in. Also, it warns you if the battery is full.

This is my first piece of code ever, and it was more an excuse to get acquainted with vim, so it's not going to make you go "wow".

#!/bin/sh
#crontab job */5 * * * * /home/angelo/.bin/battery

export XAUTHORITY=/home/angelo/.Xauthority
export DISPLAY=":0"

battery_level=`acpi -b | cut -d ' ' -f 4 | grep -o '[0-9]*'`

battery_charge=`acpi -b | cut -d ' ' -f 3 | grep -o '[Aa-Zz]*'`

battery_time=`acpi -b | awk -F '[ :]' '{print $7}'`


if [ "$battery_charge" = "Full" ];
then
	notify-send "Charged" "Battery level is 100%"
fi

if [ \( "$battery_charge" != "Charging" \) -a \( "$battery_level" -le 15 \) ];
then
	notify-send "Battery level is low" "${battery_level}%, ${battery_time} minutes left"
fi

if [ "$battery_level" -le 6 ];
then
	notify-send "Critical battery level" "Suspending in 10 seconds..."
        fi
sleep 10
	if
		[ `cat /sys/class/power_supply/BAT1/status` = "Discharging" ];
	then
		systemctl suspend

fi

EDIT: it was still doing one dumb thing (not allowing you to plug the charger during the sleep), now it just does the job.
EDIT 2: if using the same variable in different conditions this script was still dumb enough to suspend without checking the second 'if then' statement (and suspending even if you insert the plug within the 10 seconds time span).

Lot of road ahead before I learn this stuff.

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

Bash Multi Tool ver 1.1 - Bash Shell library for commonly used functions to be imported into scripts .

I write a lot of bash scripts so I made a library to import frequently used functions, rather than keep copying the same code snippets
into each script.

Not sure if there is much demand for this type of project.

This is just first version. v1.1

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

This script downloads pages of current local (local for me) newspaper and merges them.

#!/bin/sh

news_date=$(date --date=yesterday +%d | sed 's/^0//')

curl --fail http://digitalimages.bhaskar.com/gujarat/epaperpdf/$(date +%d%m%Y)/$(news_date)VAPI%20CITY-PG[1-25]-0.PDF --create-dirs --output $HOME/db/$(date +%d%m%Y)/Vapi#1.pdf

cd $HOME/db/$(date +%d%m%Y)

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

I made a script to manage config files. It moves files into a repository and symlinks them back to their original location.
It has currently 7 commands: install, uninstall, add, rm, mv, cp , ln. For usage info run "conf --help". It uses stow for installing/uninstalling, and like stow it has support for multiple "packages" so that you can install only the relevant packages on each system.

The script was created because I was tired of using stow manually. Especially adding local files to the repository, moving files out of the repository or deleting files are much easier with this tool.
Just run "conf add [-p PACKAGE] FILE1 FILE2" to move FILE1 and FILE2 into PACKAGE in repository and symlinking them back into place.

Not all options are currently working 100%, -d, -v, -q, -b and -f are only partly implemented as of now, so dont rely on them smile

Here it is if anyone wants to give it a try: https://github.com/rstnd/config-manager, Feedback is greatly appreciated

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

Here's little handy thing that gives simplified overview of the system load situation. Interpreting (and troubleshooting) a system load can be a bit cumbersome at times, and there are many moving parts to consider.
The script here tries to create summary of the system load taking most common scenarios into account, so you may have better idea about where to start looking for possible culprits when your system starts to slow down. It also features intuitive colour scheme.

# Show most memory intensive processes
function psmem () {
    echo "MSIZE:    PID:   USER:      COMMAND:"
    echo
    ps -eo size,pid,user,command | sort -rn | head -10 | awk '
        {·
            hr[1024**2]="GB"; hr[1024]="MB";
            for (x=1024**3; x>=1024; x/=1024) {
                if ($1>=x) {·
                    printf ("%-6.2f %s ", $1/x, hr[x]);·
                    break·
                }
            }·
        }·
        {·
            printf ("%-6s %-10s ", $2, $3)·
        }
        {·
            for ( x=4 ; x<=NF ; x++ ) {·
                printf ("%s ",$x)·
            }·

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

Simple web page to pdf printer with PyQt5/QtWebEngine

Prints <url> to <file.pdf> and every link that you click in the
browser window to separate pdf files after the page loads. Or
you can print just one page and quit by closing the browser
window. Settings to change page layout/margins/paper size/font/
user agent/scripts-images on/off.

You can open a wiki for example and click on the links related
to the first page and every page loaded will be printed to
file1.pdf, file2.pdf file3.pdf etc. Logs to terminal which
titles go to what file and keeps a WebToPdf_log file.

Needs python3, python-pyqt5, qt5-webengine

#! /usr/bin/env python

# Adjustable for content, paper size, font size, layout, user agent
# Makes a pdf from <url> and every page load (clicked links)

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

For quite a while I've been using my own tiny address book program for mutt.  It replaces what many online examples have 'abook' doing: you could store the address(es) from a current message into an address book, and call out to that address book to complete addresses in the To field of new mail.  This worked well, but I continually have to add addresses.  I've now found a much better and simpler way courtesy of 'notmuch' which I've been using for ages, just never for this purpose.  Now in my muttrc I have this:

set query_command = "rolo %s"

And I removed my binding for "saving" addresses as 'rolo' is the following script:

#!/bin/sh

notmuch address --deduplicate=address --output=count \
        $(printf ' and from:%s' $* | sed 's/^ and //') | sort -nr | \
        sed '
                1 iSearch results for "'"$*"'"
                s/^[0-9]*\s*\(.*\) <\([^>]*\)>/\2\t\1/
        '

This takes any number of search terms and passes them to 'notmuch' for an address search of the senders of all of my email and formats it for display in mutt's listing.  The 'sort' ensures most active addresses are at the top as these are most likely what I'd want.

Now I never have to worry about adding addresses to an address book: my maildir is my address book.

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

This is my bash function to download AUR packages from git. It grew organically, maybe I should clean it up a bit.

aurgitget() {
    local AUR4GIT_STORAGE="$HOME/build/aur4get"
    local AUR4GIT_TEMP="/tmp/aur4git"
    local AUR4GIT_EDIT="EDIT"

    mkdir -p $AUR4GIT_STORAGE $AUR4GIT_TEMP

    cd $AUR4GIT_STORAGE
    if [[ -e $1 ]]; then
        if [[ $1/.git ]]; then
            cd $AUR4GIT_STORAGE/$1
            if [[ $(git pull) ]]; then
                cd $AUR4GIT_STORAGE
            else
                echo "$AUR4GIT_STORAGE/$1 exists, but pull failed"
                return 1
            fi
        else
            echo "$AUR4GIT_STORAGE/$1 exists, but .git is missing"
            return 1
        fi
    else
        git clone $AUR/$1.git
    fi
    rsync -az $AUR4GIT_STORAGE/$1 $AUR4GIT_TEMP
    cd $AUR4GIT_TEMP/$1
    if [[ $AUR4GIT_EDIT == "EDIT" ]]; then
        if [[ -e PKGBUILD ]]; then
            $EDITOR PKGBUILD
            pwd
        else
            echo "No PKGBUILD in $(pwd)!"
            return 1
        fi
    fi
}

For some reason, I'm a sucker for rsync and distrust cp. I have no idea, where this comes from.

This is my AUR update preparation script based on aurgitget and cower:

aurupdate() {
    local AUR4GIT_EDIT="FALSE"
    for i in $(cower -qu); do
        aurgitget $i
    done
    cd $AUR4GIT_TEMP
}

After I called aurupdate, I check the PGKBUILD files and manually type some for loop to build and install all packages with makepkg. I did not automate this, because a) split packages need to be handled with care, b) automation makes people careless and c) I don't do much admin work these days, so remembering how to write a simple for-loop is a way of keeping the bash brain cells active.

EDIT: I forgot, I got...

export AUR="https://aur.archlinux.org"

set in my .bashrc, the function requires it. You can also replace the $AUR call with the AUR address, but I set it up in case I really MUST play around with aurweb myself one day.

EDIT: Cleaned up some code, see Trilby's post below.

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

Awebb, this is rather clumsy:

    if [[ ! -e $AUR4GIT_STORAGE ]]; then
        mkdir -p $AUR4GIT_STORAGE
    fi

    if [[ ! -e $AUR4GIT_TEMP ]]; then
        mkdir -p $AUR4GIT_TEMP
    fi

Why not just this:

   mkdir -p $AUR4GIT_STORAGE $AUR4GIT_TEMP

It's an artifact. I initially did more than just mkdir in case the folder did not exist, but the rest of the code was purged.

Anything else caught your eye?

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

Not much, though I think the following can be trimmed quite a bit:

        if [[ $1/.git ]]; then
            cd $AUR4GIT_STORAGE/$1
            if [[ $(git pull) ]]; then
                cd $AUR4GIT_STORAGE
            else
                echo "$AUR4GIT_STORAGE/$1 exists, but pull failed"
                return 1
            fi
        else
            echo "$AUR4GIT_STORAGE/$1 exists, but .git is missing"
            return 1
        fi

There should be no need to return to the upper directory upon a successful clone as the next steps all use full/absolute paths anyways (so the cwd doesn't matter).  So if I'm reading it right, this would do the same:

 
        if [[ ! -e $1/.git ]]; then
            echo "$AUR4GIT_STORAGE/$1 exists, but .git is missing"
            return 1
        fi
        cd $AUR4GIT_STORAGE/$1
        if [[ ! $(git pull) ]]; then
            echo "$AUR4GIT_STORAGE/$1 exists, but pull failed"
            return 1
        fi

First I got rid of one branch of the conditional in the deepest nesting (no need to cd if git succeeds, just exit if it fails).  Then I flipped the outter conditional to reduce the level of nesting (instead of 'if A (if B ...) else quit' use 'if ! A quit if B ...')  This is somewhat a stylistic choice, but I think the reduction in lines of code, removal of a level of nesting, and the ability to keep all actions closer to the conditional test they depend on are concrete criteria in favor of this change.

Also, I think you may have been missing the "-e" or other test flag in the conditional for the $1/.git.

Indeed! That's what you get for growing code organically. Thank you.

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

What is either

if [[ $(git pull) ]]; then

*or*

if [[ ! $(git pull) ]]; then

doing?

looking at the length of the stdout for this is, well, rather clumsy (and I as a user would prefer to see it anyway). Use proper git plumbing for this:

if ! git fetch; then
    echo "something went horribly wrong, check your network"
    return 1
fi
if (( $(git rev-list --count ..@{u}) > 0 )); then
    git merge --ff-only
else
    echo "already up-to-date"
    return 1
fi

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

Ah! Yes. I was doing so many tests for variables and folders, so the bash tests came automatically.

I'm not sure about "proper git plumbing", though. Why do you think clone and pull are improper and why is this fixed with fetch and merge?

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

It's not improper, unless you actually want to tell when the last pull succeeded because there was nothing to pull, or because it successfully pulled something. Currently you're checking that by seeing whether anything is emitted to stdout. -_-

git pull is porcelain designed to combine the fetch and merge commands into one, for no purpose other than to save the user some typing and be a bit more intuitive. It works *great* at this... but it does so by throwing away the scriptable status of the separate commands it runs internally.

Unless you'd like to propose some other way of telling how many commits were merged in the last merge, when a merge that doesn't do anything does not (by design) leave any traces? I guess you could save `git rev-parse HEAD` to a variable beforehand, then compare it to the results after a git pull to see if anything changed. This (separate pull && merge) seems a bit more natural to me though.
