Xeon – tiny Node.js tool for creating modular, reusable shell scripts

xeon

module loader for bash scripts with node require("module") style

about

xeon tiny node.js based tool

that simplify the process of creation modular and reusable bash scripts,

large or small, for personal usage or sysadmin tasks

install

install node first then with npm do

npm i -g xeon

note it may require sudo mode to install global node package

check availability with xeon --help

if you see help message you are ready to go

example

Lets simply create one module that we’d like to use in future

For example here is one that have function in it that print your name to console

Pretty simple

hello.sh

log_hello() {   local name=$1   echo "Hello, $name" }

and lets add one more module that say bye to u

bye.sh

log_bye() {   local name=$1   echo "Bye, $name" }

some fancy module as well

unicorn_power.sh

unicorn() {   echo "meow" }

and also some module that use other modules as well

module_that_use_others.sh

require("./bye.sh") require("./unicorn_power.sh")  # and use functions from your modules unicorn # will echo meow log_bye "Oleh" # will echo Bye, Oleh

then create entry, for example, app.sh and require some modules too

app.sh

require("./bye.sh")  require("./module_that_use_others.sh")   log_bye "Oleh"

then type at cmd xeon --input ./app.sh --output ./build/build.sh

it will read your requires, build dependency graph, resolve it and generate ./build/build.sh file,

that you can run with bash cmd

there is an file watching option as well, just add --watch flag to previous command

Okay moving next…

Imagine that we create some useful badass script, and want to share it with someone or just save for future usage.

In typical workflow u just create snippet or put it somewhere on remote machine .eg and then seaching it for hours or days, when u really need it.

With xeon you can use your shell script as npm modules as u used to (if you have node.js background).

So i have script that i upload to npm with own dependencies as well

in your app folder just install an npm module

$ npm i --save my_module_name

Then use it in our entry app.sh

app.sh

require("my_module_name")  require("./bye.sh")  require("./module_that_use_others.sh")   log_bye "Oleh"

Xeon undertand that u want to load file from node modules and will generate proper bundle file.

Next imagine you find some great script on internet, that do what u actually need and want to use it with your script

just add require("http://some.external.domain/awesome_script.sh") ;

app.sh

require("http://some.external.domain/awesome_script.sh")  require("my_module_name")  require("./bye.sh")  require("./module_that_use_others.sh")   log_bye "Oleh"

Thats all, xeon will download and include that file as well

Note! for security reasons downloading external files not allowed by default

You should use flag –external with previous command. Just be sure that u load good stuffs.

plans for future

Right now, xeon just analyze your dependencies and merge files in correct order.

It’s a pretty straightforward way of doing bundling.

However, I am currently working on AST generator/stringifier for bash scripts,

that will allow xeon to build things faster, analyze code you are going to bundle and also transform scripts in a way

you want it to be (.eg fish shell scripts could be transformed to bash scripts while build process)
