Tips & Tricks

Some CLI and tools that can came handy:

  • watchexec -> Executes commands in response to file modifications.
  • live-server -> A simple development http server with live reload capability. Useful to quickly preview the svg output
  • bat -> A cat(1) clone that supports syntax highlighting. Useful for trying various syntax highlighter when displaying the output.
Live preview the visual representation in terminal window
watchexec "scrap code $FILE.scl -f graph" --clear --watch $FILE.scl

live preview boxart.gif

Live preview the visual representation of media output (svg, jpg, png, etc)
  • For SVG
watchexec "scrap code $INPUT.scl -o $OUTPUT.svg -f smcat --as svg" --clear --watch $INPUT.scl
live-server --watch=$INPUT.scl --entry-file=$OUTPUT.svg --port=2019 --wait=2020
google-chrome --app=http://localhost:2019

live preview svg.gif

  • For VSCode user, you can --output it --as media file like png or jpg then open it in VSCode
watchexec "scrap code $INPUT.scl -o $OUTPUT.png -f graph --as png" --watch $INPUT.scl
code $OUTPUT.png

live preview png.gif
