Collection of Bash and Python scripts I've made that may be generally useful

function description
checkIP Sends you an email automatically if your IP address changes
getIP gets your public IP address (not the internal NAT address)
findtext find text inside files matching pattern.
mx mount network share example using SSHFS
memfree Estimates available RAM
cmake_setup.sh setup latest CMake from source (without sudo)

Prereq

apt install sshfs g++ libncurses-dev make

Install

python -m pip install -e .

Usage

SSHFS mount/unmount

  1. Mounting the "U" network drive at Boston University over SSHFS (slight modifications to the script allow using this anywhere)

    one time setup:

    mkdir ~/U
    
  2. mount U drive to your PC, like "mounting a network drive" in Windows, here we assume the BU username is jdoe:

    mU jdoe
    

and your network drive is available as ~/U

  1. Unmounting the "U" drive. When done for the day, suggest unmounting in case to help mitigate security risks:

    uU
    

Note: if you have any files open (like say a spreadsheet on the ~/U drive), ~/U will stay connected until you close that file(s).

Get Public IP address
