Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

I have several things...

A backup script that uses rdiff-backup and writes to a dm-crypt volume:

#!/bin/bash

if [ `id -u` != "0" ] ; then
  echo "You must be root"
  exit 1
fi

logger -t backup "backup started"

# /dev/rawbackup is created by a udev rule
cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/rawbackup lb
mount /dev/mapper/lb /backup || exit 3

sync

rdiff-backup \
--include /boot/grub/menu.lst \
--include /etc \
--include /home \
--include /var/lib/pacman/local \
--exclude '**' \
/ \
/backup/$(hostname)

sync

rdiff-backup --list-changed-since 1B /backup/$(hostname)
df -h /backup

umount /backup
cryptsetup luksClose lb

logger -t backup "backup finished"

My status bar script for dwm:

#!/bin/sh

music=""
battery=""
loadavg=""
clock=""

while true ; do

  music="$(mpc current 2>/dev/null)"
  if [ "x$music" != "x" ] ; then
    music="$music | "
  fi

  if [ -x /usr/bin/acpi ] ; then
    battery="$(acpi -b | sed -e 's/.*, \(.*%\).*/\1/')"
    if [ "x$battery" != "x" ] ; then
      battery="$battery | "
    fi
  fi

  loadavg="$(cat /proc/loadavg) | "

  clock="$(date +'%a %b %-d %-I:%M')"

  xsetroot -display :0 -name "${music}${battery}${loadavg}${clock}"
  sleep 5

done

A "crontab -e"-style tag editor for Ogg Vorbis files:

#!/bin/bash

vorbiscomment -l "$1" > "${1%%.ogg}.tag"
vim "${1%%.ogg}.tag"
echo -n "Replace tag on ${1}?[Y/n]"
read ok
[[ "$ok" != "n" ]] && vorbiscomment -w -c "${1%%.ogg}.tag" "$1"
rm -f "${1%%.ogg}.tag"

A C utility to print the window ID of the currently focused window on stdout:

/* xgetfocus.c - link against libX11 */
#include <X11/Xlib.h>
#include <stdio.h>

int main(int argc, char *argv[])
{
Display *display;
Window focus;
int revert;

display = XOpenDisplay(NULL);
XGetInputFocus(display, &focus, &revert);
printf("%d\n", (unsigned)focus);

return 0;
}

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

Just had an idea for a file chooser. With stderr it creates a small menu where only left/right/enter work, and you can pick a file from the sorted list (in this case ls -1t by modification time).
Usage:
feh "$(browse_recent)"
What it will look like:
$ feh "$(browse_recent)"
0: scrot_2009_11_11.jpg
<RIGHT>
$ feh "$(browse_recent)"
1: scrot_2009_11_10.jpg

#! /bin/bash
IFS="
"
index=0
for file in $(ls -1t); do
files[$index]=$file
((index++))
done
max=$index
((max--))
index=0
while true; do
echo -ne '\e[2K\r' >&2
echo -n $index: "${files[$index]}" >&2
read -s -n 3
if [ "$REPLY" = "$(echo -e "\e[D")" ]; then
[ $index -eq 0 ] && continue
((index--))
elif [ "$REPLY" = "$(echo -e "\e[C")" ]; then
[ $index -eq $max ] && continue
((index++))
elif [ -z "$REPLY" ]; then
echo -ne '\e[2K\r' >&2
echo "${files[$index]}"
break
fi
done

notes: if you press a key that doesn't have 3 parts like anything except cursor keys, then you need to press a few other keys until read starts at no input. (or just change the keys to jk)

hey this is pretty cool, but why not use dmenu? it's similar but you can filter the list by typing characters as well.  and it's graphical (kinda).

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

@Dieter: Ah yeah, ls -t | dmenu would be the same. Maybe I can think of a better use for the stderr + read menu.

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

Updated (and sort of final) version of the above script. Only thing that I see worthy of adding to this tiny tool is some sort of filename input, not sure how that would go though..I'll think about it, would sure be all that uzbl needs download-wise

#!/bin/sh

#DOWNLOADER="curl --progress-bar -O"
URL="$8"
SAVE="Save file"
CANCEL="Cancel saving"
UP=".."
#If you modify the above 3 variables, make sure you name them in such a manner that you will never have a folder with the same name

TARGET="$HOME"
FGCOLOR="#CC896D"
BGCOLOR="#1b1b1b"
SELCOLOR="#C4DF90"

#could have "hardcoded" these or course but this is easier in case you want to modify something :)

#->-
while (true); do
DIRLIST=`ls -l $TARGET | grep ^d | awk '{print $8}'`
if dmenu --help 2>&1 | grep -q '\[-rs\] \[-ni\] \[-nl\] \[-xs\]'
then
    SELECTION=`echo -e -n "$SAVE\n$CANCEL\n$UP\n$DIRLIST" | dmenu -nb "$BGCOLOR" -nf "$FGCOLOR" -sb "$SELCOLOR" -sf "$BGCOLOR" -p $TARGET -xs -rs -l 10`
else
    SELECTION=`echo -e -n "$SAVE\n$CANCEL\n$UP\n$DIRLIST" | dmenu -nb "$BGCOLOR" -nf "$FGCOLOR" -sb "$SELCOLOR" -sf "$BGCOLOR" -p $TARGET`
fi
if [ "$SELECTION" = "$SAVE" ]; then 
    break
fi
if [ "$SELECTION" = "$CANCEL" ]; then 
        exit
fi
if [ -z "$SELECTION" ]; then 
        exit
fi
if [ "$SELECTION" = "$UP" ]; then 
        TARGET=$(dirname $TARGET)
else
    TARGET="$TARGET/$SELECTION"
fi
done
#-<-

cd "$TARGET"
xterm -bg "$BGCOLOR" -fg "$FGCOLOR" -title "Download" -e "echo \"Target: $TARGET/\" && $DOWNLOADER $URL && echo \"Download complete. Press any key to close\" && read"

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

This is what I (from now on) use to connect to the wifi on my university, dunno if it is as effective as it can be or if it's a horrible (or wonderful ...right) Rube Goldberg machine, as I'm new to bash scripting, so comments would be appreciated.

What it does is:
- Check for root privileges, exits if not privileged.
- ups the wireless if it's down.
- releases the wireless if it's configured. (eh somewhat, my terminology is probably a bit off)
- scans the wireless souroundings and does some processing:
- - if an access point is not encrypted, print signal strength and essid on same line.
- - sort based on signal strength (good first).
- - remove duplicate essids (sorting first, so that it's the bad signal strength essids that are removed).
- - sort again since the above mucks up the order.
- - remove signal strength information (only useful for sorting).
- - remove entries not matching what is listed in $known.
- - append semicolon to each essid.
- - remove all newlines, so that $available is a one line string.
- Iterate over the essids in $available using semicolon as the delimiter (This is because at least one essid in my uni has a space in it).
- - Try to connect (because of the sorting before, it tries to connect to the strongest first).
- - Exit the script if successful.

I need a sorted list of all random numbers, so that I can retrieve a suitable one later with a binary search instead of having to iterate through the generation process every time.

That seems to be an error on my part, line 24:

Note the " between g and ). My original post has been updated.

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

I find that ompload ruby script in AUR doesn't work for me anymore. So I made up one in bash.

#!/bin/bash

###:: ompload bash version

# TODO: Add 'slow down, cowboy' sleeps

URL='http://omploader.org/'
TMP='/tmp/ompload.tmp'
Q='-#' ; U=0 ; F='OmPlOrD'

while getopts 'quf:h' opt ; do
    case $opt in
        q) Q='-s' ;;
        u) Q='-s' ; U=1 ;;
        f) F="$OPTARG"  ;;
        h) echo '-q for quiet; -u for url only; -f for stdin.name' ; exit 0 ;;
    esac
done
shift $((OPTIND-1))

if [ ${#@} -eq 0 ] ; then
    curl $Q -F "file1=@-;filename=${F}" ${URL}upload -o "${TMP}"
    URI=$(grep '<!-- View file' "${TMP}" | grep -m1 -o ${URL}'[[:alnum:]]*')
    echo "${URI}"
else
    for IMG ; do
        curl $Q -F "file1=@${IMG}" ${URL}upload -o "${TMP}"
        URI=$(grep '<!-- View file' "${TMP}" | grep -m1 -o ${URL}'[[:alnum:]]*')
        [ $U == 0 ] && echo "${IMG}" '-->' "${URI}" || echo "${URI}"
    done
fi

Can somebody tell me why the good old ompload ruby script doesn't work anymore? I think it's 'coz the ruby version bump... How do I fix it?

Edit: So I updated the script as Daenyth suggested, allowing stdin as input. smile

You should add a -t 0 check to let it read from STDIN

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

Maybe this is a bit too simple to be worth posting (in light of the above), but I find it useful:

#!/bin/bash

du --max-depth=1 | sort -nr

Example usage:

[/usr] du0
3989396    .
2000024    ./share
1466052    ./lib
256156     ./bin
221060     ./include
37724      ./src
8296       ./sbin
40         ./doc
36         ./local
4          ./man

Edit for SpeedVin:
The command shows the size of the current directory and each directory off the current directory (including hidden), sorted by size, The size is given in k, though actually this looks a bit better:

#!/bin/bash

du -h --max-depth=1 | sort -hr

Giving:

3.9G    .
2.0G    ./share
1.4G    ./lib
251M    ./bin
216M    ./include
37M     ./src
8.2M    ./sbin
40K     ./doc
36K     ./local
4.0K    ./man

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

A small monitor for RSS. It scans the source code of the links in the RSS, so be wary of html tags in your terms, and don't forget to use regex characters like \<, \>.

#! /bin/bash
# $1 = *.rss
#
# Continuously check the articles in an rss for terms.
# Put terms in ~/.rss_getter_terms, newline separated.

[ $# = 1 ] || exit 1
IFS="
"
while true; do

for article in $(curl -s "$1" | sed -n 's/<link>\(.*\)<\/link>/\1/p' | sed 's/#.*//;s/[[:blank:]]//g' | tail -n +2 | tac); do
(curl -s "$article" | grep -o -i "$(cat ~/.rss_getter_terms)" && echo -e "$article\t\t$(date)" ) | tr '\n' ' ' | sed -n 's/.$/&\n/p'
sleep 2
done

sleep 100

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

Aliases specific to the current directory.  Handy for those commands which vary slightly by directory.

pwda.sh:

#!/bin/zsh

typeset -A alias

case $PWD in
    "$HOME/code/project")
            alias=(
                "clean" "make clean"
                "tag" "git tag $2 $3"
                "archive" "git archive --format=tar --prefix=project-$2/ $2 | gzip > project-$2.tar.gz"
                "build" "./configure --enable-this --disable-that --prefix=/usr && make"
                "mkrelease" "pwda.sh clean && pwda.sh build && pwda.sh tag $2 $3 && pwda.sh archive $2"
            );;
    "path/to/dir")
            alias=(
                "alias1 "command1"
                "alias2" "command2"
            );;
esac

ran_command=1

# Prepare source if necessary
test -z $alias[.before-action] || eval $alias[.before-action]

# Perform specified actions
test -z $alias[$1] || ran_command=0; eval $alias[$1]

# Perform any necessary cleanups
test -z $alias[.after-action] || eval $alias[.after-action]

exit $ran_command

To have it provide aliases transparently, try:

.zshrc:

command_not_found_handler() {
    /path/to/pwda.sh "$@"
}

or

.bashrc:

command_not_found_handle() {
    /path/to/pwda.sh "$@"
}

The one drawback of this is it requires zsh to provide decent syntax for associative arrays.  I'd be interested if anyone knows a way to implement this in bash cleanly.

may break if you have the string " - " anywhere in an artist or title tag

edit: quick bugfix, i'll probably do that a few times...

first thing first, I'm not that much good in scripting like you people & I found above script much useful.
but if u have got "[" in your song title then it adds that song again to the good songs list.
so i am proposing a way to avoid this & might be there is another way to achieve same.
changes only in the "case" statement where script gets called without argument ie adding songs

*)          mpc | grep -q playing || exit 1
              song="$(mpc | head -n1)"
              tmp="$(echo "$song" | sed -e 's/\[/\\[/g')"
              grep -qx "$tmp" "$list" || echo "$song" >> "$list" ;;

Fix your tags.

#!/bin/bash

library=$HOME/media/audio/Music
IFS=$'\n'
for file in $(mpc list filename genre Psychadelic); do
  id3 -2v -g Psychedelic "$library/$file"
done
mpc update

The script uses id3 (in [extra]) to set the id3v2 genre tag and update the mpd library.

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

I made this the other day to auto download torrent files exclusively from Digital Hive. Might be useful for someone else, as well. It will increment the episode and season numbers as it downloads each new episode, so there's no reason to constantly edit the configuration file. Just use cron to run it every 15 minutes or so and it'll throw the torrents into your watch directory automatically. (I use rtorrent btw.)

dhr.py

#!/usr/bin/python
