reelpath is a CLI application that prints the absolute path for a given file or directory.
user at host in ~/github.com/nickgerace/reelpath % reelpath README.md /home/user/github.com/nickgerace/reelpath/README.md
Could this exist as a shell function? Probably. Did I want a cross-platform method to get the absolute path for a given file or directory? Yes.
You can supply multiple arguments to the CLI, use pipes with
xargs, and use wildcards in a single argument.
reelpath file reelpath directory reelpath ../relative/path/to/file reelpath ../relative/path/to/directory reelpath $(ls) reelpath file.* file.extension directory/* ls | xargs reelpath
There are two primary methods for installing
brew install nickgerace/nickgerace/reelpath
Note: the tap may not work with Linuxbrew.
cargo install reelpath
Keeping the crate up to date is easy with cargo-update.
cargo install cargo-update cargo install-update -a
This project adheres to Semantic Versioning, but does not leverage popular changelog formats, like Keep a Changelog, because of its tiny size and purpose. Using GitHub to compare two tags, commits, etc. should suffice for this project.
Local developer testing suffices for this project due to its tiny size and purpose. Continuous integration would be wasteful, but this is subject to change.
This repository follows and enforces the Rust programming language's Code of Conduct.
