#2061 in Command line utilities
31 downloads per month
Not finding an existing utility to head and tail the output, nor a good way to combine existing utilities even with the help of a couple friends of mine, we decided to make one. We ended up doing a "day of learning" session with about 50 other engineers from GitHub and collaboritively came up with a minimum viable solution that worked well!
Now it's a real utility that we keep improving. Go try it out!
Contributions are welcome! Here are some good first issues you could look into.
You need to have Rust installed.
# Install latest *release* version of headtail $ cargo install headtail
# Use it on a file - prints the first 10 and last 10 lines $ headtail somebigfile.txt # Pipe stdout to it - prints the first 10 and last 10 lines $ somecommand | headtail # Print the first 25 and last 5 lines of a file $ headtail somebigfile.txt -H 25 -T 5 # Print the default amount of first lines, but only 3 last lines $ headtail somebigfile.txt -T 3 # Do the default thing...but then keep tailing the file and print # out anything new that is appended to it. $ headtail somebigfile.txt -f
headtail -h for a full list of command-line options.
# Run locally with arguments $ cargo run -- YOUR_ARGS_GO_HERE # Enable debug logging $ RUST_LOG=trace cargo run -- YOUR_ARGS_GO_HERE # Install local development version of headtail into your ~/.cargo/bin $ cargo install --path .
