Customizing hyper scripter

You can find the config file at ~/.config/hyper_scripter/.config.toml. Here's an example:

# Filter out scripts within recent days.
recent = 999999

# Alias you may find handy
after = ['ls', '-a']
after = ['rm', '-s', 'remove', '*']

# ...
# Type and tag selectors will be discussed later

Type and templates

You can add your own script Type here. For example, you may want to run ruby scripts with irb, rather than simply ruby. Here's how you can achieve that:

# Type and templates
ext = 'rb' # file extensions is same as any ruby scripts.
color = 'bright red' # colors shown in `hs ls` and other places.
# tmplate is powred by handlebars
template = [
    '# Hello, scripter!',
    "NAME = '{{name}}'",
    'def {{name}}',
    '    {{#each content}}{{{this}}}',
    '    {{/each}} ',
# the exact program you want to run scripts with
cmd = 'irb'
# arguments are also templates
args = ['-r', '{{path}}']
# environment variables
env = []
