clpm - Command Line Project Manager

Command Line Project Manager (clpm) is designed to make managing sets of files easier.

Watch the demo.

Features

  • Organize files and commands into projects and recall them with just a few keystrokes
  • Access full filename path with simple shell variables, ex: grep apples $j
  • Access all files at once, ex: svn commit $all

Synopsis

$ p v "My Vimfiles" # create a new project with shortcut "v" called "My Vimfiles"
$ p                 # list all projects
Projects:
* v          My Vimfiles

$ f r .vimrc                     # add .vimrc to this project with shortcut "r"
$ f c .vim/colors/vividchalk.vim # add this file with shortcut "c"
$ f                              # list all files in the current project
Project: v (My Vimfiles)
Current files:
r .vimrc                                             /home/dbradford
c vividchalk.vim                                     /home/dbradford/.vim/colors

$ export EDITOR=vim
$ f c # edit file assigned to "c" with $EDITOR

$ fa  # edit all files in project with $EDITOR

$ d t # cd to directory containing file with shortcut "t"

$ x t "cd /some/target/directory; make test" # add command with shortcut "t"
$ x t                                        # execute command assigned to shortcut "t"
t/DMB.t .. ok
All tests successful.
Files=1, Tests=1,  0 wallclock secs ( 0.05 usr  0.02 sys +  0.05 cusr
0.03 csys =  0.14 CPU)
Result: PASS

$ cat $c >>$r # use shell commands to work with this set of files

Installation

Basic GitHub Checkout

  1. Check out clpm into ~/.clpm.

    $ git clone https://github.com/tinypigdotcom/clpm.git ~/.clpm
  2. Run the installer

    $ ~/.clpm/bin/p install

    Ubuntu note: Modify your ~/.profile instead of ~/.bash_profile.

    Zsh note: Modify your ~/.zshrc file instead of ~/.bash_profile.

  3. Follow the additional instructions from the installer

Todo

  1. Add tests to cover all functionality
  2. Create installer
  3. Docs should cover same material between 'p --help' and 'README.md'
  4. Create video documenting use
  5. Create blog post based on documentation
  6. further improvements to code, if nothing else, then via Perl::Critic

Technical Notes

  1. clpm uses Data::Dumper and eval for persistance. It used Storable initially, but after two separate instances of data corruption, that was abandoned in favor of YAML, which in turn wasn't available in many environments, thus Data::Dumper.

Detailed Usage

Get help

$ z # or p --help or f --help or x --help etc
Command Line Program Managers (clpm) v2.0.0
Help commands:
            z  - this listing
Organization commands:
            f  - manage files
                examples:
                show list of files:    $ f
                edit file 1, 3, and L: $ f 13L
                edit all files:        $ fa
                add file to the list : $ f , /tmp/a.out /etc/hosts /etc/passwd
                add file with label L: $ f L /tmp/a.out
                remove file 1, 3, L  : $ f -13L
            x  - manage commands (same basic format as f)
                examples:
                show list of cmds:     $ x
                run cmd 1, 3, and L:   $ x 13L
                edit cmd 1, 3, and L:  $ x .13L
                edit all cmds:         $ xa
                add cmd to the list :  $ x , 'echo hey' 'Optional Label'
                    NOTE: surround command with quotes
                add cmd with label L:  $ x L 'echo howdy; echo there' 'Optional Label'
                remove cmd 1, 3, L  :  $ x -13L
            p  - change project/view list of projects
                show project list:     $ p
                switch to project:     $ p myproj
                remove project:        $ p -myproj
Current project: sst

Get project listing

$ p
Projects:
  f          rpg fight simulator
