Bash-Snippets

A collection of small bash scripts for heavy terminal users with no dependencies

Version Codacy Badge Build Status platform license

All of these scripts have been heavily tested on macOS and Linux

Most of these scripts have been tested on Windows 10 and the official developer bash instance. Does not work with Cygwin or Mysys2.

Looking for maintainers: I have been and probably will forever be too busy to maintain this properly on my own. I am looking for a few others to help out, if you want to be a maintainer either email me or raise an issue. I will probably only accept maintainers who have made a few contributions (no matter how small) and seem to understand the vision of this project.

Tools

Cheat

The fastest way to find {command options|code pieces} you need

Supports multiple languages and many bash commands

Cloudup

A tool that facilitates backing up github repositories to bitbucket

If you have ever felt the fear of the github unicorn this could be your savior

Furthermore you can backup the repositories of any github user to your bitbucket.

Backup all github repositories of the designated user at once with the -a option. Or run it with no flags and backup individual repositories.

Crypt

A wrapper for openssl that allows for quickly encrypting and decrypting files

crypt -e [original file] [encrypted file] # encrypts files
crypt -d [encrypted file] [output file] # decrypts files

Encryption Details

  • Uses AES 256 level encryption
  • Key is salted before creation
  • Password is never in plain text, and OpenSSL generates key based on password
  • Encrypted data is encoded in Base64, so it can be used as plain text in an email. (Not usually necessary if attached as a file)

Tested With .pdf, .txt, .docx, .doc, .png, .jpeg

CAUTION Make sure to use different filenames, otherwise your file will be overwritten!

Cryptocurrency

Converts Cryptocurrency based on realtime exchange rates of the top 10 cryptos

Originally written by: Jonas-Taha El Sesiy Heavy modifications by: Alex Epstein

Currency

Converts currency based on realtime exchange rates

If you want to bypass to guided input you can pass in 3 arguments and it will run from there ex.currency [baseCurrency] [exchangeToCurrency] [amountBeingExchanged] so a valid use case would be currency USD EUR 12.35

Written by: Jake Meyer

Written by: Linyos Torovoltos

Short

Gets the link that is being masked by a url shortner

Siteciphers

Check which ciphers are enabled / disabled for a given https site.

Sometimes ciphers are deemed vulnerable, so when you are changing configuration, this can be used to confirm that the cipher truly is disabled.

Some browsers (For example old versions of IE) don't support some of the newer ciphers, which would be a good example of when a SysAdmin would need a list of currently supported ciphers so that changes can be made.

Stocks

Provides information about a certain stock symbol

Taste

Recommendation engine that provides three similar items like the supplied item

Also can provide information on a given item

Valid items are: shows, books, music, artists, movies, authors, games

  • After getting the API key run the following line export TASTE_API_KEY="yourAPIKeyGoesHere" >> ~/.bash_profile
Todo

A simplistic command line todo list

Transfer

Quickly transfer files from the command line.

Weather

Provides a 3 day forecast

With no arguments it will grab the weather for your location as determined by your ip

With arguments you can pass in a city or country and get the weather in that area

Youtube-Viewer

Provides a way to watch youtube videos from the terminal.

You can use ytview -c [channel name] to see recent videos by that artist.

You can use ytview -s [videoToSearch] or just ytview [videoToSearch] to search for videos.
