boom manages your text snippets on your command line. You can stash away text like URLs, canned responses, and important notes and then quickly copy them onto your clipboard, ready for pasting.
For more details about what boom is and how it works, check out boom's website.
# gem install boom # nope
If you want to install this version you'll need a few steps as I didn't publish the gem (Ping me if you want me to). So here is how to get it:
# clone this repo $ git clone email@example.com:romainberger/boom.git # create the branch and pull it $ git co -b did-you-mean $ git pull origin did-you-mean # build and install the gem $ gem build boom.gemspec $ gem install boom-0.3.0.gem
Quick and Dirty
$ boom gifs Boom! Created a new list called "gifs". $ boom gifs shirt http://cl.ly/NwCS/shirt.gif Boom! "shirt" in "gifs" is "http://cl.ly/NwCS/shirt.gif". Got it. $ boom shirt Boom! Just copied http://cl.ly/NwCS/shirt.gif to your clipboard.
And that's just a taste! I know, you're salivating, I can hear you from here. (Why your saliva is noisy is beyond me.) Check out the full list of commands.
Did you mean this?
Here is the only thing added to the basic boom version. Let's pretend you want to copy an item called
ridiculously-long-thing. But you don't quite remember the name. Let's see what happens:
# How is this thing called again? $ boom copy ridiculously-long-stuff Couldn't find ridiculously-long-stuff Did you mean this? ridiculously-long-thing # Oooooooh yeah
Want to join the Pantheon of Boom'ers? I'd love to include your contributions, friend.
Clone this repository, then run
bundle install. That'll install all the gem
dependencies. Make sure your methods are TomDoc'd
properly, that existing tests pass (
rake), and that any new functionality
includes appropriate tests.
The tests are written in shell for
roundup, since boom is basically just
Ruby pretending to be shell.
rake should run them all for you just fine.
All good? Cool! Then send me a pull request!
I love you
Zach Holman made this. Ping me on Twitter —
@holman — if you're having issues, want me to
merge in your pull request, or are using boom in a cool way. I'm kind of hoping
this is generic enough that people do some fun things with it. First one to use
boom to calculate their tax liability wins.
