hr

<hr /> for your terminal

Tired of not finding things in your terminal because there's a lot of logs and garbage? Tired of destroying the Enter key by creating a "void zone" in your terminal so that you can see the error that you're trying to debug?

Use the old <hr /> tag, but in your terminal. How? Allow me to explain:

Setup

Linux

Quick install

$ curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/LuRsT/hr/master/hr > ~/bin/hr
(Examine ~/bin/hr)
$ chmod +x ~/bin/hr

Note: You should have ~/bin in your $PATH for this to work.

Complete install

$ git clone git@github.com:LuRsT/hr.git
$ cd hr

Open Makefile and edit the PREFIX variable, specifying the directory where you'd want the software to reside. Then:

$ sudo make install

OSX

OSX users can install using Homebrew:

$ brew install hr

How to use it?

$ hr
################################## # Till the end of your terminal window
$

$ hr '*'
********************************** # Till the end of your terminal window
$

You can also make "beautiful" ASCII patterns

$ hr - '#' -
----------------------------------
##################################
----------------------------------
$ hr '-#-' '-' '-#-'
-#--#--#--#--#--#--#--#--#--#--#--
----------------------------------
-#--#--#--#--#--#--#--#--#--#--#--

That's it, no requirements, just pure old bash and tput, check the source, it's free.
