pipeline shell command
A utility to make building up a pipeline of shell commands easier, especially when doing data exploration.
If you've ever found yourself writing shell code, in an endless loop of piping
less, scanning it over and making changes, then
pipeline can make
your life just a little bit more beautiful.
This is just a thin wrapper around your shell, not some totally new data mining
tool. Launch pipeline, and start typing shell commands as usual. Every time you
hit enter you'll see a one-screen preview of your output, similar to piping
less, but your cursor will stay right where it was for further
Ctrl-C when you're done.
Pipeline depends only on ncurses and readline (or libedit), both of which ship with MacOS and most common Linux distros.
Install with Homebrew.
brew tap codekitchen/pipeline brew install pipeline
autoreconf -fi # only if building from git, skip this for release tarballs ./configure make
After make finishes, you'll be able to use
./pipeline. You can also install it using:
sudo make install
It might work under MinGW/GitBash? Please let me know.
