SodiumSierraStrawberry

Fighting path reading fatigue one path at a time! The revolution starts now!

example

What problem does this solve?

It makes it easier to read a long path. It'll save you approximately 6ms* each time you try to read a path with your eyes, and comprehend it with your brain.

It does this by applying two types of transformations:

  • search and replace (these are set in $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/sodiumSierraStrawberry/config.json - aka ~/.config/sodiumSierraStrawberry)
  • intelligent(?) directory truncation (this can be adjusted with the --limit parameter)

Examples:

From: /home/sodium/Projects/Personal/Sierra

To: »Projects/Sierra


From: /home/sodium/Projects/Personal/Sierra/Super/Long/Path/HolyAvacado

To: »Projects/Sie…/Sup…/Lon…/Pat…/HolyAvacado/

What are the limitations?

You need to use the » char to 'prevent' that path segment from being truncated. It's hardcoded!

How do I execute it?

sodiumSierraStrawberry /your/path/goes/here/example --limit 20

The above should output:

/you…/pat…/goe…/her…/example/

Installation

Configuration

Add such a file at $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/sodiumSierraStrawberry/config.json

[
  [
    "/home/chris"
  , "~"
  ],
  [
    "/home/chris/Projects"
  , "»Projects"
  ]
]

Copy the static binary (if you trust me!):

wget https://github.com/chrissound/SodiumSierraStrawberry/releases/download/v1/sodiumSierraStrawberry
mv sodiumSierraStrawberry ~/.local/bin/

Wtf no, I'll compile it myself.

You'll need to know how to compile Haskell projects:

stack install
