teleport-scala

A clone of teleport written in Scala as a showcase that writing native CLIs in Scala might not be such a bad idea.

How to build teleport-scala

You should have following on your $PATH:

  • Java JDK 11
  • sbt
  • native-image

You can consult file .travis.yml in case of difficulties in installing prerequisites. Once you have everything installed you can:

./build.sh

As a result teleport-scala.jar and executable teleport-scala should be created.

Bringing tp into scope

If you watched the asciiname animation you may have noticed that it uses tp command as opposed to teleport-scala. To bring tp into scope add the following to your .zshrc/.bashrc:

source /your/path/to/teleport-scala/teleport.sh

It's crucial that executable teleport-scala is in the same directory as teleport.sh (which is the case by default after running ./build.sh).

For curious - what's the point of having tp in addition to teleport-scala?

The problem is that goto command cannot be fully implemented in a subprocess; it's not possible for the teleport-scala to change working directory of the caller process. Therefore, teleport-scala goto point returns status code 2 and prints the absolute path of the point. As bash function fp is sourced it can change the working directory.

If that sounds vague to you just read teleport.sh file - it's just a few lines of code.
