rb

With 9 lines of Ruby replace most of the command line tools that you use to process text inside of the terminal.

Here's the code

#!/usr/bin/env ruby
File.join(Dir.home, '.rbrc').tap { |f| load f if File.exists?(f) }

def execute(_, code)
  puts _.instance_eval(&code)
rescue Errno::EPIPE
  exit
end

single_line = ARGV.delete('-l')
code = eval("Proc.new { #{ARGV.join(' ')} }")
single_line ? STDIN.each { |l| execute(l.chomp, code) } : execute(STDIN.each_line, code)

Clone this repo and copy the rb file to somewhere in your path (or just copy and paste the above).

With this you can use ruby as a command line utility much more ergonomically than invoking it the standard way.

There's only one switch -l which runs your code on each line separately. Otherwise you get an Enumerator that returns the lines of stdin. It's instance_evaled so some methods need self to work, eg. self[-1]

Install

Just paste this line into your terminal to install rb:

sudo curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/thisredone/rb/master/rb -o /usr/local/bin/rb && sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/rb

Extending rb

The ~/.rbrc file is loaded if it's available. Anything defined in there will be available inside rb scripts.

# ~/.rbrc

class String
  def black; "\033[30m#{self}\033[0m" end
  def red;   "\033[31m#{self}\033[0m" end
end
> ls | rb first.red
