ScriptGen is a script generator tool that simplifies the process of running scripts in any language.

Introduction

When a script is executed using an interpreter, the command line statement can become quite long as it includes the interpreter path, script path, and all required arguments. ScriptGen addresses this issue by consolidating the interpreter and script paths into a short command that can be easily accessed from anywhere in the system. This means that when calling the script via command, only the arguments need to be passed.

ScriptGen generates commands for all operating systems. For Windows, it generates batch and PowerShell scripts. For macOS, it generates Shell scripts and PowerShell scripts which can be used if PowerShell is installed. For Linux, it generates Shell scripts. This makes it easy to run scripts on any platform without having to manually create the appropriate command.

Build

Clone the scriptgen_node repository from GitHub, navigate to the cloned repository, and build the project using Cargo.

git clone https://github.com/isurfer21/scriptgen_node.git
cd scriptgen_node
npm install

After running the appropriate commands, you should have a local copy of the ScriptGen project that is ready to use.

Prints the version information for ScriptGen.

scriptgen -v

or

scriptgen --version

Sets the interpreter and the script path to use when generating the script.

scriptgen -i <INTERPRETER> -s <SCRIPT_PATH>

or

scriptgen --interpreter <INTERPRETER> --script-path <SCRIPT_PATH>

Note that <INTERPRETER> and <SCRIPT_PATH> are placeholders for the actual values that you want to use.

Examples

Here are some examples of how to use scriptgen with different interpreters and script paths:

To generate a script using Node as the interpreter and a script named sample.js:

scriptgen -i node -s sample.js

To generate a script using Python as the interpreter and a script named sample.py:

scriptgen -i python -s sample.py

To generate a script using Java as the interpreter and a script named sample.java:

scriptgen -i "java -jar" -s sample.jar

In each of these examples, the -i option is used to specify the interpreter and the -s option is used to specify the script path.
