    explode

    explode (and implode) are command line utilities for creating and opening .tar, .tar.gz, .tar.bz2 directories. Because life is too short for tar.

    tar

    Install

    With node.js and npm:

    npm install explode -g
    

    You can now use explode and implode from the command line.

    Examples

    Explode

    Extract foo.tar into ./foo

    explode foo.tar
    

    Extract foo.tar into ~/bar

    explode foo.tar ~/bar
    

    Extract foo.tar.gz

    explode foo.tar.gz
    

    Extract foo.tar.bz2 into ./bar

    explode foo.tar.bz2 bar
    

    Implode

    Implode creates tar files from directories, using the compression indicated by the filename.

    Create a foo.tar from the bar directory

    implode foo.tar bar
    

    Create a foo.tar.gz from the bar directory

    implode foo.tar.gz bar
    

    Create a foo.tar.bz2 from the bar directory.

    implode foo.tar.bz2 bar
    

    Implode is forgiving

    If you just want to tar a directory, this will do what you expect

    implode bar #=> creates bar.tar
    

    Getting the args the wrong way around works as you expect

    implode foo bar.tar
    

    Thanks

    To Heather Arthur for creating replace, on which this is based.
