package to shape text blocks

Project Description

/text manipulation: a package to shape text blocks/

So you have a block of text … What do you want to do with it?!?

== Desired Functionality ==

  • onelineit
  • quoting
  • dequoting (including e.g. +/-, diff-ish shit)
  • remove whitespace
  • removing timestamps
  • removing/adding irc quote tags

== Previous work ==

/corpus of past programs -> consolidate/

Interface: - library code - (n)curses - javascript/REST

Consider the pattern:

  • things that add and/or remove a thing
  • things that alter spacing

== Things to import from my fluxbox keys ==


Control Mod1 o :ExecCommand xclip -o | /home/jhammel/python/ | xclip -i # put the clipboard contents on one line
Control Mod1 p :ExecCommand xclip -o | /home/jhammel/python/ | xclip -i # pastebin
Control Mod1 q :ExecCommand xclip -o | /home/jhammel/python/ | xclip -i # quote using >'s
Control Mod1 0 :ExecCommand xclip -o | sed 's/^[-+]//' | xclip -i # strip leading +s

== Reference ==
