Simple shell command to work with files in console. Copy-paste style like in Finder or Explorer.
Heaven for copy-pasters
I'm very happy with near everything in my favorite
zsh. But I am worried every time when I need to copy a lot of different files from different parts of the disk.
Very convenient way to do it using the copy-paste paradigm, like in Explorer or Finder. Simply select the files, press
ctrl+c, switch to the directory you require, press
So, I am worried and once upon a time I said: "Enough". And so was
What is C?
C is a small Python3 script which trying to imitate
cmd key for files operation. How it works? It's simply like this:
$ cd /etc $ c c passwd +. /etc/passwd $ c c sudoers sshd_config +. /etc/sudoers +. /etc/sshd_config $ cd apache2 $ c c httpd.conf +. /private/etc/apache2/httpd.conf $ cd ~/backup $ c v Copying to `/home/bobuk/backup' . /etc/sshd_config -> backup/sshd_config . /etc/passwd -> backup/passwd . /etc/apache2/httpd.conf -> backup/httpd.conf . /etc/sudoers -> backup/sudoers
c c is a analogue for
c v for
ctrl+v. Looks like a crap? Yes! But with nifty aliases it's can be a much easier. You can use your favorite
ctrl+commands as a shell commands.
$ ls README.md TODO.todo c install.sh $ cmd+c README.md install.sh +. README.md +. install.sh $ mkdir release && cd $_ $ cmd+v Copying to `/Users/bobuk/V/c/release' . /Users/bobuk/V/c/README.md -> /Users/bobuk/V/c/release/README.md . /Users/bobuk/V/c/install.sh -> /Users/bobuk/V/c/release/install.sh $ ls -1 README.md install.sh $ cmd+c +D /Users/bobuk/V/c/release $ cd .. $ cmd+del Are you sure to remove 1 directories files (y/n)y move to trash /Users/bobuk/V/c/release Done
In this case I use
cmd+commands because installation script recognize what it run on Darwin.
$ cmd+h List of commands: cmd+c mark files and directories for copying or moving cmd+v copy files and other stuff to current directory cmd+del remove selected files to trash cmd+p show a list of marked files cmd+R reset list of selection cmd+h show list of commands
This is a raw list of features. Must be reordered and completed.
cmd+ccommand work as 'mark files' and take unlimited number of arguments.
cmd+cwith no arguments work as
cmd+cwith current directory argument.
-qswitch make all commands quiet.
-2will stop commands from files list flushing. I.e. after
cmd+vold files list still in buffer.
cmd+delremove files into system trashcan if module
Yes, it's me. All code and staff was writen by BoBuk.
It's absolutely CC0 public domain. But copying with bad intents prohibited by real patsans law
