monky-tools

Voice debugging, node shebanging and other devtools

Install

Local (voice, console)

Install

npm install monky-tools

Import

tools = require "monky-tools"

Global (shebang)

Install

npm install -g monky-tools

Voice

Thin wrapper around OS X's 'say' command. I primarly use it for voice debugging, i.e. getting audio feedback when running code I'm working on so that I don't have to switch focus to the console.

Usage

Initialize

# Use default voice
# (set in OS X's 'Dictation & Speech' settings)

voice = new tools.Voice()

# Or select another voice. I usually go with Fiona because her voice is nice and clear
# (plus I think she likes me...)

fiona = new tools.Voice 'fiona'

# If you don't know which voices you have installed, you can list them
# (takes grep pattern as optional parameter, e.g. "en_" for all English voices)

Voice.list()

Voice.list("en_")

Run

# Default voice
voice.say "Voice debugging! What will they think of next?"

# Fiona
fiona.say "Rangers are shit. Celtic rule!"					# Sorry, she's Scottish...

Console

Thin wrapper around good 'ol console.log and console.error. Adds green and red color to output.

Import

log = tools.console.log
error = tools.console.error

Run

# Output green message to console
log "Server up and running"

# Output red error message to console
error "Error: file not found!"

Shebang

Adds the shebang #! /usr/bin/env node to a file. I use this command with a filewatcher when developing nodejs apps in CoffeeScript.

shebang <file>

For use with WebStorm (or other JetBrains IDEs), add a FileWatcher with the following settings (run which shebang in terminal to get path to executable)

Program: e.g. /usr/local/bin/shebang

Arguments: $FileName$

Working directory: $FileDir$

Install

npm i monky-tools
