 Usage : uec <command> [file/text] <option> [arg]

 Commands : <Conversion - Unicode escapes to characters>

  -l, --local   Convert local files
  -r, --remote  Convert remote files
  -t, --text    Convert and print oneline text

 Options :
  --read    Read the content of a local file
  --save    Save the local or remote file with a desirable name

 NOTE : <options> works with command --local and --remote

 Files will get saved with a random name if --save is not provided!

Details

  • Suppose you've an unescaped unicode like \ud83d\ude01 and you can want to convert it into the character, which is 😁. You can simply do -
$ uec -t "\ud83d\ude01"

Data will always be under single or double quotes!

  • For locally saved file filled with unescaped unicodes. Suppose you've a file called unicorn.txt or unicorn.json and you want to convert it. Just do -
$ uec -l unicorn.txt
  • Alternatively, you can provide --save flag to save the file, which can be followed by another flag as a name of the file, for example -
$uec -l unicorn.txt --save somename

But, by default, the files will be saved with names like somename-unicorn.txt or somename-unicorn.json.

  • In case you just want to print the output without saving it as a new file, you can do the following -
$ uec -l unicorn.json --read

NOTE : Currently, there is no support to add path of the file in order to do the conversion, --local command works only if the file is in same directory!

  • For remote files, there is a condition - The requsted data should be in the form of txt/json. For the sake of testing, I've uploaded two files to check the functionality

Now, to read the remote files, you can do -

$ uec -r https://goo.gl/19PySg

You don't need --read flag in order to do so. For saving the online file, You just need to -

$ uec -r https://goo.gl/19PySg --save <optional-name>

NOTE : I just made this for personal use. I hope other find it helpful too!
