  • yt-mp3chanrip() { for count in 1 51 101 151 201 251 301; do for i in $(curl -s http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/users/"$1"/uploads\?start-index="$count"\&max-results=50 | grep -Eo "watch\?v=[^[:space:]\"\'\\]{11}" | uniq); do ffmpeg -i $(wget http://youtube.com/"$i" -qO- | sed -n "/fmt_url_map/{s/[\'\"\|]/\n/g;p}" | sed -n '/^fmt_url_map/,/videoplayback/p' | sed -e :a -e '$q;N;5,$D;ba' | tr -d '\n' | sed -e 's/\(.*\),\(.\)\{1,3\}/\1/') -vn -ab 128k "$(youtube-dl -e http://youtube.com/"$i").mp3"; done; done; unset count i; } create the function and run with yt-mp3chanrip YoutubeUsername Great for channels like ukfDrumAndBass that only post music. No more need for third party browser plugins or websites that only convert one vid one at a time. It'll convert and save to CWD up to 300 of a user's videos to mp3s, one at a time. To increase, just increment the $count pattern. This is a concoction from commands #7718 and #7752, so it uses ffmpeg wget, curl, sed, and youtube-dl -- youtube-dl is only used to get the title of the video which it uses to name the mp3 file. You can use a different naming method if you want and the function should still work.

  • i use this after ripping internet radio streams to number the files as they originally played (even though streamripper can do this with -q). to number other types of files, or all files, just change the *mp3. to rename directories only you could use ... ls -lt | grep ^d | cut -d ":" -f2 | cut -d " " -f2- | while read ... Show Sample Output

    IFS=$'\n'; i=1; ls -lt *mp3 | cut -d ":" -f2 | cut -d " " -f2- | while read f; do mv "$f" $(echo "$i"."$f"); ((i++)); done

What's this?

commandlinefu.com is the place to record those command-line gems that you return to again and again. That way others can gain from your CLI wisdom and you from theirs too. All commands can be commented on, discussed and voted up or down.

Check These Out

Display the output of a command from the first line until the first instance of a regular expression.
If BREs can be used, this sed version will also get the job done.

List only executables installed by a debian package
Safe for whitespaces in names.

View ~/.ssh/known_hosts key information

Get AWS temporary credentials ready to export based on a MFA virtual appliance
You might want to secure your AWS operations requiring to use a MFA token. But then to use API or tools, you need to pass credentials generated with a MFA token. This commands asks you for the MFA code and retrieves these credentials using AWS Cli. To print the exports, you can use: `awk '{ print "export AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=\"" $1 "\"\n" "export AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=\"" $2 "\"\n" "export AWS_SESSION_TOKEN=\"" $3 "\"" }'` You must adapt the command line to include: * $MFA_IDis ARN of the virtual MFA or serial number of the physical one * TTL for the credentials

Ask for a password, the passwd-style
You can ask repeatedly for a non-blank password using this function: function read_password() { while [ ! -n "$USER_PASSWORD" ]; do read -s -p"Password: " USER_PASSWORD if [ ! -n "$USER_PASSWORD" ]; then echo "ERROR: You must specify a valid password, please try again" fi echo done } Also you can set a time out (in seconds) to write the password read -t 10 -s -p"Password: " USER_PASSWORD_VARIABLE if [ ! $? -eq 0 ]; then echo "Time out!" fi

Serial console to a Vmware VM
Create a serial console with "socket (named pipe)" of "/tmp/socket", "from:server, to:virtual machine" in vmware player, etc.. gui. Run the above command after you have booted the guest OS (which should also be configured for serial console).

bulk rename files with sed, one-liner
Far from my favorite, but works in sh and with an old sed that doesn't support '-E'

Set a Reminder for yourself via the notification system
This will be seen through your system's visual notification system, notify-osd, notification-daemon, etc. --- sleep accepts s,m,h,d and floats (date; sleep .25m; date) --- notify-send (-t is in milliseconds && -u low / normal / critical) man notify-send for more information --- notification-daemon can use b/i/u/a HTML
