About

As developers, we try to automate and build shortcuts to improve our workflow. Sometimes we always run the same command in a specific project directory and a slightly different command or the same command with slightly different parameters in another.

A good example is when pushing code, we might run git push origin master for one repository, but for another, we might want to run hub push origin,deploy master instead. genie helps you do that.

genie lets you create commands that are bound to directories. In our example, we can create a push command that, depending on which directory we run it in, invoke the correct push command.

Usage

Here's how to create a command with genie:

  1. Create a YAML configuration file matching the softlink in your user directory's .config directory. e.g. For the command called push, you would create ~/.config/push.yml.

    Contents for the YAML file are key-value mappings from a directory path to the command to be ran in that directory (and it's subdirectories):

    /Users/hboon/code/piggyalarm: git push bb master
    /Users/hboon/code/simplymeta: hub push bb,deploy master
    ~/code/ligify: git push bb master
    

    You can also run genie create <command> to help you create a sample YAML file.

  2. Create a softlink to genie with a sensible name and make sure it's in your $PATH, e.g.

    ln -s genie push
