  • Sqlite database keeps collecting cruft as time passes, which can be cleaned by the 'vacuum;' command. This command cleans up the cruft in all sqlite files relating to the user you have logged in as. This command has to be run when firefox is not running, or it will exit displaying the pid of the firefox running.

    pgrep -u `id -u` firefox-bin || find ~/.mozilla/firefox -name '*.sqlite'|(while read -e f; do echo 'vacuum;'|sqlite3 "$f" ; done)

  • Filters out all non-insert SQL operations (we couldn't filter out only lines starting with "INSERT" because inserts can span multiple lines), quotes table names with backticks, saves dump to a file and pipes it straight to mysql. This transfers only data--it expects your schema is already in place. In Ruby on Rails, you can easily recreate the schema in MySQL with "rake db:schema:load RAILS_ENV=production".

    sqlite3 mydb.sqlite3 '.dump' | grep -vE '^(BEGIN|COMMIT|CREATE|DELETE)|"sqlite_sequence"' | sed -r 's/"([^"]+)"/`\1`/' | tee mydb.sql | mysql -p mydb

  • Similar output to using MySQL with the \G at the end of a Query. Displays one column per line. Other modes include: -column Query results will be displayed in a table like form, using whitespace characters to separate the columns and align the output. -html Query results will be output as simple HTML tables. -line Query results will be displayed with one value per line, rows separated by a blank line. Designed to be easily parsed by scripts or other programs -list Query results will be displayed with the separator (|, by default) character between each field value. The default. From inside the command line this can be also changed using the mode command: .mode MODE ?TABLE? Set output mode where MODE is one of: csv Comma-separated values column Left-aligned columns. (See .width) html HTML code insert SQL insert statements for TABLE line One value per line list Values delimited by .separator string tabs Tab-separated values tcl TCL list elements Show Sample Output

  • Newer versions of Dropbox let you choose the location for your Dropbox folder. If you use script to put things into your Dropbox folder (todo list, screenshots, torrents etc.) but have the Dropbox folder in different locations on your other computers this lets you use the same script on all systems without having to tell it where the Dropbox folder is. Show Sample Output

    sqlite3 $HOME/.dropbox/config.db "select value from config where key like '%dropbox_path%'"

What's this? 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.

Selecting a random file/folder of a folder
Also looks in subfolders

Kill all processes that don't belong to root/force logoff
explanation: grep -- displays process ids -v -- negates the matching, displays all but what is specified in the other options -u -- specifies the user to display, or in this case negate The process loops through all PIDs that are found by pgrep, then orders a forced kill to the processes in numerical order, effectively killing the parent processes first including the shells in use which will force the users to logout. Tested on Slackware Linux 12.2 and Slackware-current

Add fade in/out to first & last 25 frames of a video
Replace vid.mp4 with the path to your original video file, and out.mp4 to the path where you want to save the new file. To view the output first before saving, remove "-consumer avformat:out.mp4" from the end. Documentation for mlt framework and melt command can be found here:

Install pip with Proxy
Installs pip packages defining a proxy

Silently deletes lines containing a specific string in a bunch of files
This command will find all occurrences of one or more patterns in a collection of files and will delete every line matching the patterns in every file

Which processes are listening on a specific port (e.g. port 80)
swap out "80" for your port of interest. Can use port number or named ports e.g. "http"

Numeric zero padding file rename
rename file name with fixed length nomeric format pattern

Inserts the results of an autocompletion in the command line
Pressing ESC then * will insert in the command line the results of the autocompletion. It's hard to explain but if you look the sample output or do $ echo ESC * you will understand quickly. By the way, few reminders about ESC : - Hold ESC does the same thing as tab tab - 'ESC .' inserts the last argument of last command (can be done many times in order to get the last argument of all previous commands)

Makes the permissions of file2 the same as file1
Also works with: $chgrp --reference file1 file2 $chown --reference file1 file2

make, or run a script, everytime a file in a directory is modified
