Middleware for in application use

Ever wish you didn't have to develop some general purpose libraries and or middleware which you simply tote around between applications making simple tweaks when appropriate or blindly copying and pasting as needed? If so, then this is a library you can sink your code into.


I built this because I use the same code over and over again and I'm tired of copying the same bits between projects. So now, if I have something that's general purpose enough I'm going to put it in library which I'll use throughout my applications as I develop them.


  • Argument parsing for CLI applications
  • HTTP requests
  • Universal logging
  • Outbound email messaging
  • Linux package installation
  • Configuration file parsing
  • Shell commands
  • Various utilities


Pull requests are always welcome.
