A set of bash scripts to get me on task and keep me moving.
Mac OS X only. Relies heavily on the
say command and
osascript commands for controlling applications.
The interesting functions are all in
timed-functions.sh. Otherwise it is up to personal preference and whatever clever tricks you can come up with to optimize your time. If you want a place to start from I suggest
bash-morning.sh. That is the script I use the most.
Personally I find that this sort of scripting gives me a lot less to think about during the morning. My equivalent to Obama's only having one suit so he doesn't need to make a decision. I can also do things like script up links to recent code changes by everyone on my team, or every dashboard that I want to review for performance. I find having that sort of thing in a text file much easier to maintain than putting it into browser bookmarks.
