Highlights of my Coding Work

I ended up creating a GitHub Pages site today to get a lot of my programming work in one place so that folks can easily see/find it. Previously I had to send people to the “coding” tag of this blog to try to see it all together.

Putting the bits together, I really started to realize exactly how many things I’d actually created, regardless of how small. So here’s a quick feature/overview of the programs I’m happiest with.


Create side and top bars in tmux easily, along with a “devour” style command.


Modular scripts to take text, images, and links from RSS feeds and push to social media


A script in bash (with some assorted tools) to collect info about available bandwidth and to perform traffic shaping


A script to output who all is actively connected to your DD-WRT router so that you can see who is home (and maybe trigger conditions with your servers)


A selfhosted way to create images with quotations using fortune, imgmagick, and unsplash.it to create your own quotation porn.


Automatic MPD “smart playlist” creator in bash with minimal but hackable setup.


Clean a series of links, resolving redirects and finding Wayback results if page is gone


Enhanced, modular, bookmarking for newsboat, newsbeuter, or (for that matter) anything that can pass a title and an URL to a program.


Transform your e-mail newsletters into webpages and an RSS feed.


A GUI/TUI addressbook searcher/viewer for use with a mess of vcards


Find the right manpage or cheatsheet, easily. Incorporates and displays from man, tldr, and cheat (so far).


Parsing and converting documents on the fly in the terminal (or with a terminal popup)


BASH/YAD script to read and fix PDF tags in filenames and exif metadata. Very helpful if you have a bunch of stuff not OCR’d and need a quick easy fix.


Simplifying (I hope) UFW and iptables, includes a utility to get blocklists and incorporate them.


Download and display album art or display embedded (or folder-based) album art. Designed to work with MPD, the music player daemon.


A bash script to get the weather from OpenWeatherMap and output to the terminal, Openbox, or HTML


Various music-related tweaks/tips/scripts. Includes fuzzy selection of artist/genre/album script and albumart in the console script
