Client Bash library for talking to the Prometheus pushgateway

Typical usage:

io::prometheus::NewGauge name=start_time help='When the run began'
start_time set "$(date +%s)"
io::prometheus::PushAdd cronjob '' :9091

: main cron job code goes here

io::prometheus::NewGauge name=end_time help='When the run ended'
end_time set "$(date +%s)"
io::prometheus::PushAdd cronjob '' :9091

This is a library to help you push metrics from your Bash script to a Prometheus pushgateway server.

It's written to use GNU Bash's features, mainly because the basic POSIX shell doesn't support the local keyword.

The library is still missing some essential features such as documentation and non-gauge metrics.
