Selector - bash history

11 december 2012

Selector is a small bash commands capture tools developed by François Fleuret. It provides a simple interface for navigating through the history of commands and paths via keyboard shortcuts. Once the tool is set up, simply use the keys (Alt + r) to navigate through the command history and (Alt + d) to find all the different paths visited.

Handy for quickly navigating through the tree and quickly find order already used. Selector supports via (Alt-r) looking at the first character (same as google), compatible with regular expressions ...

Its implementation is very simple:

  1. Repatriate sources
  2. Construction of binary
  3. Called from your ~. Bashrc

For the impatient:

cd ~
mkdir bin/
cd bin/
git clone 
cd selector
make selector
sudo ln -s ~/bin/selector/selector /usr/local/bin/selector

nano ~/.bashrc
#exemple d'intégration à son bash
#if [ -f ~/bin/selector/ ]; then
#   . ~/bin/selector/ --hist --cd

source ~/.bashrc
selector --help
Example rendering (Alt + r)

Selector (Alt+r)

###   Handy Extract Program
extract () {
   ee() { # echo and execute
       echo "$@"
       $1 "$2"
   for x in "$@"; do
       [[ -f $x ]] || continue
       case "$x" in
           *.tar.bz2 | *.tgz )    	ee "tar xvjf" "$x"    ;;
           *.tar.gz | *.tbz2 )    	ee "tar xvzf" "$x"    ;;
           *.bz2 )                	ee "bunzip2" "$x"     ;;
           *.rar )                	ee "unrar x" "$x"     ;;
           *.gz )                 	ee "gunzip" "$x"      ;;

           *.7z )                 	ee "7z x" "$x"        ;;

### This piece of code lists the size of every file and subdirectory of the current directory,
### much like du -sch ./* except the output is sorted by size, 
###with larger files and directories at the end of the list. 
###Useful to find where all that space goes. 
dusa ()
   du -a --max-depth=1 | sort -n | awk '{
               if (size >= 1024)
                       size = size /1024;
               if (size >= 1024)
                       size = size /1024;
               printf "%6.1f%s %s\n",  size, unit, $0;

export HISTFILESIZE=5000              # Larger history
export CLICOLOR=1                     # Use colors (if possible)
export LSCOLORS=ExGxFxdxCxDxDxBxBxExEx
