A tiny tool to hook up your blink(1) device to commands on your beloved shell.

blink1-run

A tiny tool to hook up your blink(1) device to commands on your beloved shell.

blink1-run will execute any given command within your current shell and start with a slow strobe light as an load indicator. Upon completion it will flash in green or red depending on the return state of the executed command.

Install

Most OS need you to be root (e.g. using sudo) to install a global npm package:

$ npm -g install blink1-run

blink1-run depends on Node.js and npm. Tested with node v4.2.0 and npm v2.14.7.

Usage

Prepend the blink1-run or b1 alias to your command. Hook up your blink(1) device and run:

$ b1 <your-command> <argument-1> <argument-2> ...

examples:

$ b1 sleep 5
$ b1 echo simple/single commands can be used without quotation marks
$ b1 "sleep 5 && echo very complex c0mmand && sleep 5"
$ b1 "mysql -u mysqluser -p my_database < huge_database_dump.sql"
$ b1 cat flash_red_if_this_file_does_not_exist
