Bashinator is a bash shell script framework. It provides flexible and powerful message handling that lets you print to stdout, log (to syslog or a logfile), and mail messages with a single message function. Exhaustive information is included in messages to ease debugging. This information includes timestamps, message severity, source file, line numbers, and function names. A facility for tracing the function call stack is provided. Sub-command output can be logged by capturing the stdout/stderr of external commands to a dedicated temporary logfile. The framework also provides lockfile handling.
When writing anything that needs to communicate with a terminal in some way, it is almost always speaking some dialect of VT100 or ANSI. The libvt 100 library aims solely at parsing a stream of VT100/ANSI data and then letting the host application do the rendering. Many other projects also parse VT100/ANSI data, but their parser is always tangled up with the actual rendering of the data, making reuse in other projects problematic. The hope is that other projects will start using libvt100 and everyone can stop reinventing the wheel with each project.
STALLioN is a cross-platform C/C++ library for creating coherent CLI/Terminal programs on multiple platforms with one codebase. It aims to provide a consistent development API across multiple platforms so that separate code does not have to be created for each (often very different) terminal interface.
