orbit - :satellite: A simple tool for running commands and generating files from templates

  •        19

Orbit started with the need to find a cross-platform alternative of make and sed -i commands. As it does not aim to be as powerful as these two commands, Orbit offers an elegant solution for running commands and generating files from templates, whatever the platform you're using.Download the latest release of Orbit from the releases page. You can get Orbit for a large range of OS and architecture.

makeself - A self-extracting archiving tool for Unix systems, in 100% shell script.

  •    Shell

makeself.sh is a small shell script that generates a self-extractable compressed tar archive from a directory. The resulting file appears as a shell script (many of those have a .run suffix), and can be launched as is. The archive will then uncompress itself to a temporary directory and an optional arbitrary command will be executed (for example an installation script). This is pretty similar to archives generated with WinZip Self-Extractor in the Windows world. Makeself archives also include checksums for integrity self-validation (CRC and/or MD5/SHA256 checksums). The makeself.sh script itself is used only to create the archives from a directory of files. The resultant archive is actually a compressed (using gzip, bzip2, or compress) TAR archive, with a small shell script stub at the beginning. This small stub performs all the steps of extracting the files, running the embedded command, and removing the temporary files when done. All the user has to do to install the software contained in such an archive is to "run" the archive, i.e sh nice-software.run. I recommend using the ".run" (which was introduced by some Makeself archives released by Loki Software) or ".sh" suffix for such archives not to confuse the users, so that they will know they are actually shell scripts (with quite a lot of binary data attached to them though!).

xss-payload-list - 🎯 Cross Site Scripting ( XSS ) Vulnerability Payload List

  •    HTML

Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) attacks are a type of injection, in which malicious scripts are injected into otherwise benign and trusted web sites. XSS attacks occur when an attacker uses a web application to send malicious code, generally in the form of a browser side script, to a different end user. Flaws that allow these attacks to succeed are quite widespread and occur anywhere a web application uses input from a user within the output it generates without validating or encoding it. An attacker can use XSS to send a malicious script to an unsuspecting user. The end user’s browser has no way to know that the script should not be trusted, and will execute the script. Because it thinks the script came from a trusted source, the malicious script can access any cookies, session tokens, or other sensitive information retained by the browser and used with that site. These scripts can even rewrite the content of the HTML page. For more details on the different types of XSS flaws, see: Types of Cross-Site Scripting.

thirsty - Reminds you to drink water - on your terminal.

zsh/bash script to remind you to drink water. If you're like me and you spend a lot of time programming with the command line open, chances are that you forget about everything for hours, which includes drinking water. At the end of the day I used to realise that I had not consumed enough water. Hence I created a bash/zsh script to remind me to drink water right on my command line.

Batsh - A language that compiles to Bash and Windows Batch

  •    OCaml

Batsh is a simple programming language that compiles to Bash and Windows Batch. It enables you to write your script once runs on all platforms without any additional dependency. Both Bash and Batch are messy to read and tricky to write due to historical reasons. You have to spend a lot of time learning either of them and write platform-dependent code for each operating system. I have wasted lots of time in my life struggling with bizarre syntaxes and unreasonable behaviors of them, and do not want to waste any more.

cross-env - 🔀 Cross platform setting of environment scripts

  •    Javascript

Most Windows command prompts will choke when you set environment variables with NODE_ENV=production like that. (The exception is Bash on Windows, which uses native Bash.) Similarly, there's a difference in how windows and POSIX commands utilize environment variables. With POSIX, you use: $ENV_VAR and on windows you use %ENV_VAR%.cross-env makes it so you can have a single command without worrying about setting or using the environment variable properly for the platform. Just set it like you would if it's running on a POSIX system, and cross-env will take care of setting it properly.
