spacer is a simple CLI tool to insert spacers when command output stops.
If you're the type of person that habitually presses enter a few times in your log tail to know where the last request ended and the new one begins, this tool is for you!
brew install spacer
Direct from Cargo:
cargo install spacer
spacer outputs a spacer after 1 second with no output. You can
change this with the
tail -f some.log | spacer --after 5
--after accepts a number of seconds, and allows floating point numbers for
STDOUT and STDERR
Some commands output most of their information on STDERR, not STDOUT.
only monitors STDOUT, so if you find a situation where
spacer doesn't seem
to be working it could be that the program you're piping from is using STDERR.
To "fix" that, redirect STDERR to STDOUT by using
2>&1 in your command:
my-command 2>&1 | spacer
