    javaqpublic

    You know how simple it is to run

    ... | python  foo.py          arg, arg | ...
    ... | ruby    foo.rb          arg, arg | ...
    ... | node    foo.js          arg, arg | ...
    ... | coffee  foo.coffee      arg, arg | ...
    

    You've wished you could run

    ... | j       Foo.java        arg, arg | ...
    

    Now you can.

    • Get NodeJS >= 0.8.0
    • npm install -g javaq
    • Add alias j='javaq' to your profile

    What if I'm lazy and don't want to specify which .java to run?

    Then don't. If exactly one of the .java files in ls -lR . contains a main, javaq will run that one.

    Is it as slow as javac ... && java ...?

    Currently, yes.

    Soon, .classs will be cached.

    I want to eventually shave off every possible millisecond.

    Which .java files get compiled?

    Everything in ls -lR .. Later, this will be limited to those needed to run the main class.

    Settings

    These must be specified before the first argument that matches /\.java$/. Otherwise they will be passed on to the program you're running.

    --builds-dir=...

    Optional. Defaults to ~/Library/Application Support/javaq/builds. javaq will use this folder as it sees fit.

    --lib=...

    Optional. A folder containing JARs. Defaults to ~/Library/jars if that exists. Those JARs will be on the -classpath when running javac and java.
