Tail files, and do things with them.
pip install erudite or if it's your thing:
easy_install erudite. You'll
need to also get argparse if you're using a Python less than 2.7.
This might work on Python 3+, but I haven't tested it.
Send first words of your zsh history to StatHat (currently the default):
erudite --parser=zsh_history --logger=StatHatLogger --firstname.lastname@example.org ~/.zsh_history
If you just want to play around, and see what you can do:
erudite --parser=zsh_history --logger=PrintingLogger ~/.zsh_history
Parsers (used to parse lines) are in
erudite/parsers.py, and loggers (used to
do things with parsed lines) are in
It would be totally awesome to have many many more options in this script. I'm totally open to contributions. But there are a few things that will help me:
- Your fork should have a topic branch with your feature, requesting to pull
- Please don't add any requirements for loggers to setup.py - catch ImportError and exit gracefully. (see StatHatLogger for an example)
- If you're adding a parser, it would be awesome if you could attach some sample input.
- Just for fun, you might want to run pylint against your changes.
- If you're changing default settings, it's totally cool. Just ask me first.
- You should add yourself to Authors in the README.
In particular, here are some things/ideas that would be great to have:
- Parser for bash history
- Parser for database logs
- Logger for redis/mongo/whatever nosql store you want to use
- Logger for StatsD
- And if you're feeling particularly ambitious: tests
