This is a tui implementation of the popular classic naval battle game, written in Bash.

The objective of the game is to destroy the computer's fleet, before the computer achieves the same against you.

You take turns with the computer, hitting squares in each other's grids.

You have to guess the position of the enemy ships on the computer's 10x10 grid, in order to win.

win

You lose if the computer achieves sinking your ships first.

I just noticed that eza can now display total disk space used by directories!

I think this is pretty cool. I wanted it for a long time.

There are other ways to get the information of course. But having it integrated with all the other options for listing directories is fab. eza has features like --git-awareness, --tree display, clickable --hyperlink, filetype --icons and other display, permissions, dates, ownerships, and other stuff. being able to mash everything together in any arbitrary way which is useful is handy. And of course you can --sort=size

docs:

  --total-size               show the size of a directory as the size of all
                             files and directories inside (unix only)

It also (optionally) color codes the information. Values measures in kb, mb, and gb are clear. Here is a screenshot to show that:

eza --long -h --total-size --sort=oldest --no-permissions --no-user

Of course it take a little while to load large directories so you will not want to use by default.

Looks like it was first implemented Oct 2023 with some fixes since then. (Changelog). PR #533 - feat: added recursive directory parser with `--total-size` flag by Xemptuous

tui mines is evidently a text-based user interface implimentation of the classic mine sweeping puzzle game.

The user has to clear a board, square by square, flagging the squares suspected to hide mines on the way.

If the user opens a mine square, things go KABOOM! and the game is lost.

kaboom!

The user uses hints from the numbered squares. This numbers how many bombs are touching that square in every direction ( 8 in total).

Through logic, and a bit of luck, the player ends up clearing all the squares, while flagging all the mines.

Howdy Lemmy,

I'm announcing Rook v0.0.9, software that provides a secret service a-la secret-tool, keyring, or pass/gopass, except backed by a Keepass 4.x kdbx file.

The problem Rook solves is mainly in script automation, where you have aerc, offlineimap, isync, vdirsyncer, msmtp, restic, or any other cron jobs that need passwords and which are often configured to fetch these passwords from a secret service with a CLI tool. Unlike existing solutions, Rook is headless and does not have a bespoke secrets database, full of passwords that must be manually synchronized with Keepass; instead, it uses a Keepass db directly.

While the readme goes into more detail, I will say the motivation for Rook evolved from a desire to use a Keepass db in a GUI-less environment and finding no existing solutions. KeepassXC provides a secret service, but is not headless; it also provides a CLI tool, but this requires the db credentials on every call. kpmenu exists, but is designed specifically to require human interaction and is unsuitable for cron environment scripting. Every other solution maintains its own DB back end, incompatible with Keepass.

Rook also benefits from minimal external dependencies, and at 1kloc is auditable by developers - I believe even by ones who do not know Go (the language of implementation). Being able to verify for yourself that there's no malicious code is a critical trait for a tool with which you're trusting secrets.

Rook is fit for purpose, and signed binaries are provided as well as build-from-source instructions (for auditors).

The project contains work in progress: credentials are limited to simple password-locked kdbx, and so doesn't yet support key files. Bash scripts that provide autotyping and attribute/secret selection via rofi, fzf, and xdotool are provided, for GUI environments; these have known bugs. Rook has not been tested on BSD, Darwin, or any other system than Linux, but may well work; the main sticking point is the use of a local file socket for client/server communication, so POSIX systems should be fine, but still, YMMV.

As a final caveat: up until v0.0.9 I've been compressing with brotli, which is very nice yet somewhat obscure. With the next release, everything will be gzipped. Also included in the next release will be packages for various distributions.

After an unexpected need to reset my work machine ๐Ÿ˜“, and needing to set up my development environment again by hand ๐Ÿ› ๏ธ, I decided to create a solution to quickly restore my local git repositories (and associated folder structure) ๐Ÿ”„.

I took this opportunity to write two bash scripts that clone and update all repositories on GitHub belonging to either a user or an organization ๐Ÿ“ฆ.

This means that, for example, with a single command โŒจ๏ธ, you can clone hundreds or thousands of repositories, with high levels of concurrency (50 clones in parallel is doable ๐Ÿ’จ).

The scripts allow for a configurable clone depth, a limit for the number of repositories cloned, and a level of concurrency that decides how many clones are run in parallel ๐Ÿ“ˆ.

By running the following command:

git-clone-all --owner f3rno64 --limit 200 --jobs 40 --dir ./f3rno64

I was able to clone all 174 personal repositories ๐Ÿ“š, with full commit histories and all tags & branches, in 58 seconds โฑ๏ธ.

I wrote a blog post describing this in more detail here ๐Ÿ“, check it out for a breakdown of the arguments and examples of usage.

The GitHub repository is f3rno64/mass-git-scripts and the README also includes examples and general usage instructions ๐Ÿ—‚๏ธ.

Please check it out and let me know what you think! ๐Ÿ’ฌ

I hope you find it useful, and any feedback or suggestions for improvement would be greatly appreciated! ๐Ÿ™

Hello! This is not my project, I just found it today.

Making verbose things more concise and readable makes a big difference to me, and this could be excellent for me when dealing with HTML/XML. Just piping those formats through xmq yields a beautiful and clear rendering of the data.

And as a NestedText enthusiast, I can now (using additional existing tooling):

  • transform HTML -> JSON -> NestedText
  • edit NestedText
  • transform NestedText -> JSON -> HTML

I have a list containing a set of tags, and would like to exclude one tag, unless another tag exists in the line.

Say I have the following list, and want to exclude B, unless A is present.

[A,B]
[A,C]
[B,C]
[A]
[B]

I can reverse grep for B:

> grep --invert-match "B"
[A,C]
[A]

How can I find the previous list, but also the item containing [A,B]?

kdotool uses KWin's scripting API to control windows. In each invocation, it generates a KWin script on-the-fly, loads it into KWin, runs it, and then deletes it, using KWin's DBus interface.

This program should work with both KDE 5 and the upcoming KDE 6.

I created a very simple script that shows the history usage of your shell. Should work with bash and fish shells.

This basically goes through the history and counts the command names. So all of git push, git pull, etc will count as just git.

Example output:

    847 pacman
    296 cd
    206 git
    203 time
    180 vim
    172 awk
    166 aur
    142 strace
    141 cat
    125 ls
Total commands:  7008
Unique commands: 753
