Howzit

Gem Travis GitHub license

A command-line reference tool for tracking project build systems

Howzit is a tool that allows you to keep Markdown-formatted notes about a project's tools and procedures. It functions as an easy lookup for notes about a particular task, as well as a task runner to automatically execute appropriate commands.

Features

  • Match topic titles with any portion of title
  • Automatic pagination of output, with optional Markdown highlighting
  • Use @run(), @copy(), and @open() to perform actions within a build notes file
  • Use @include() to import another topic's tasks
  • Use fenced code blocks to include/run embedded scripts
  • Sets iTerm 2 marks on topic titles for navigation when paging is disabled
  • Inside of git repositories, howzit will work from subdirectories, assuming build notes are in top level of repo
  • Templates for easily including repeat tasks
  • Grep topics for pattern and choose from matches

Getting Started

Prerequisites

  • Ruby 2.4+ (It probably works on older Rubys, but is untested prior to 2.4.1.)
  • Optional: if fzf is available, it will be used for handling multiple choice selections
  • Optional: if bat is available it will page with that
  • Optional: mdless or mdcat for formatting output

Installing

You can install howzit by running:

gem install howzit
