SwiftyBash Logo : When Bash meets Swift

Swift 4.1 Badge Travis Badge Plateform

SwiftyBash is a Swift Bash scripting & piping library, written in Swift.

🤖 Usage

🚀 Simple bash command

Describe your command through a BashCmd object, and run it! It is that simple :

// Run `ls` in the executable directory
let ls = BashCmd("ls")
let result = try! ls.run()

// Run `git status` from ~/MyProject directory
let status = BashCmd("git", args:"status", from:"~/MyProject")
let result = try! status.run()

🤝 Pipe

You can pipe output and input stream easily, as many times as you want !

let ls = BashCmd("ls", args:"-l", from:"~/")
let grep = BashCmd("grep", args:"root")
let wc = BashCmd("wc", args:"-l")

// Use pipe() function
let result = try! ls.pipe(grep).pipe(wc).run()

Custom operator

You can use the | to pipe from a command to another 😻

⚠️ You have to declare the operator somewhere in your project to be able to use it !

// Operator declaration somewhere in your project
infix operator |

// Have fun ! How beautiful is it ?
let result = try! (ls | grep | wc).run()

🔥 Error handling

SwiftyBash uses Swift exception to handle error, by throwing a BashException.

let grep = BashCmd("grep", args:"hosts", "/private/etc/*")
do {
  try grep.run()
}
catch {
  if let error = error as? BashException {
    print(error.stderr) // Prints STDERR
    print(error.stdout) // Prints STDOUT
  }
}

✏️ Output type

You can chose the output type between a simple String or to write the output into a file. Default is .string(.raw).

Write into a file

let cat = BashCmd("cat", args:"file.json")
let grep = BashCmd("grep", args:"'secrets'")

// Write the result into `secrets.json`
try! (cat | grep).run(outputType:.file("secrets.json"))

Whitespaces trimming

let ls = BashCmd("ls", args:"-l")
let wc = BashCmd("wc", args:"-l")

let result = try! (ls | wc).run(outputType:.string(.raw))                 // result is `       6`
let result = try! (ls | wc).run(outputType:.string(.whiteSpacesTrimmed))  // result is `6`

Example of output

When taking the output as a string or to a file, new lines (\n) are kept. So, here is an example of output :

let ls = BashCmd("ls", args:"-l")
let result = try! ls.run()
print(result!)
