A minimalistic CLI tool for storing shell commands.

Remembering useful commands is difficult, and typing out long commands is frustrating. Relieve these pain points with catacomb, a simple CLI tool for storing, retrieving and executing commands. Just type out the command once, and then execute it through catacomb, with an alias of your choice.

Setup

$ pip3 install catacomb

Usage

Two entry points are used to separate organisation of tombs and their contents. The catacomb entry point provides commands to deal with organisation of tombs within the catacomb. Having seperate tombs for seperate projects, as an example, would allow isolated environments - so that you're not forced to come up with new aliases that execute different commands for different projects.

Usage: catacomb [OPTIONS] COMMAND [ARGS]...

  For handling the tombs within your catacomb. Add the flags -h or --help to
  any of the commands for more information, e.g. catacomb COMMAND -h.

Options:
  -h, --help  Show this message and exit.

Commands:
  bury    Permanently buries a tomb, preventing any further use.
  create  Creates a new tomb in the catacomb.
  list    Lists the tombs currently available in the catacomb.
  open    Opens an existing tomb.

The tomb entry point provides commands to deal with the contents of a single tomb. Tombs act as a store for all your commands, allowing you to use and manage them by simply specifying the alias.

Usage: tomb [OPTIONS] COMMAND [ARGS]...

  For handling the contents within a tomb. Add the flags -h or --help to any
  of the commands for more information, e.g. tomb COMMAND -h.

Options:
  -h, --help  Show this message and exit.

Commands:
  add     Stores a new command in the tomb.
  clean   Obliterates the contents of the active tomb.
  edit    Opens an editor to edit a command that's already stored in the
          active tomb.
  list    Displays all the commands available in the active tomb.
  rm      Removes a command from the tomb.
  status  Shows some general information about the active tomb.
  use     Executes a command, specified by its alias.
