projector 0.1.2

Project management CLI
projector-0.1.2 is not a library.

Projector, a CLI for managing multiple projects

I work on a lot of FOSS projects, it's literally part of my job. Unfortunately this means that moving around my project directories (especially my GOPATH) can get insanely burdensome. So I wrote this CLI to basically emulate my much beloved projectile tool in Emacs. This CLI can be viewed as a "no setup" required version of mr (myrepos). But a bit more flexible than that.

Installation

You can install projector from crates.io via cargo:

cargo install projector

Or you can build it locally with:

git clone https://github.com/chasinglogic/projector $PATH_TO_PROJECTOR
cd $PATH_TO_PROJECTOR
cargon install --path .

Usage

projector 0.1.0
Mathew Robinson <chasinglogic@gmail.com>

USAGE:
    projector [OPTIONS] [SUBCOMMAND]

FLAGS:
    -h, --help       Prints help information
    -V, --version    Prints version information

OPTIONS:
    -c, --code-dir <CODE_DIR>    The root of where to search for projects. Also can be
                                 configured using the environment variable CODE_DIR.
                                 Default: ~/Code

SUBCOMMANDS:
    help    Prints this message or the help of the given subcommand(s)
    list
    run

Definitions

Projector considers any git repo as a "project". In future versions I will expand this definition but it works for me now so that's the way it is. Additionally, projector operates off of the assumption that you have all of your code / projects under one directory. For myself I use ~/Code.

Projector has two functions: list and run.

List

list will literally print a list of the projects under your code directory.

You may be wondering, what would I use this for? The answer is quickly moving around!

You can create a bash function in your bashrc like this:

function sp() {
    cd $(projector list | grep -i $1)
}

Now if you source your bashrc and type sp $name_of_a_project you will instantly be transported to your project directory. For example:

Users/chasinglogic λ . .bashrc
Users/chasinglogic λ sp projector
Code/projector master λ sp dfm
chasinglogic/dfm master λ pwd
/Users/chasinglogic/Code/go/src/github.com/chasinglogic/dfm
chasinglogic/dfm master λ

Optionally, if you have another tool I'm fond of called FZF you can take this a step further and make a fuzzy searchable list of your projects:

function sp() {
  cd $(projector list | fzf)
}

Now you get something like this:

and you can search and select using FZF's awesome interface:

> /Users/chasinglogic/Code/archive/projector
  /Users/chasinglogic/Code/python/projector
  /Users/chasinglogic/Code/projector
  3/56
> projector

Enter and voila!:

Users/chasinglogic λ sp
Code/projector master λ pwd
/Users/chasinglogic/Code/projector
Code/projector master λ

Run

Run allows you to run shell commands in all of your projects. For example if you wanted to run git status on every project:

Code/projector master λ projector run git status
nothing to commit, working tree clean
On branch emacs-26
Your branch is up-to-date with 'origin/emacs-26'.

Untracked files:
  (use "git add <file>..." to include in what will be committed)

	update.sh

nothing added to commit but untracked files present (use "git add" to track)
On branch master
Your branch is up-to-date with 'origin/master'.

Changes not staged for commit:
  (use "git add <file>..." to update what will be committed)
  (use "git checkout -- <file>..." to discard changes in working directory)

	modified:   Cargo.lock

no changes added to commit (use "git add" and/or "git commit -a")
On branch master
Your branch is up-to-date with 'origin/master'.

nothing to commit, working tree clean
On branch master
Your branch is up-to-date with 'origin/master'.

nothing to commit, working tree clean
Code/projector master λ

Any flags you pass after the program will get passed to the program so you can type the command just like you would normally, no weird shell quoting!
