Project description

CLI for making a text to fit in a max number of columns. It is possible to especify the max number of columns as well as to juntify it.

It is possible to write output to a file and to pipe a text for the script’s standard input.

Preparing for Development

  1. Ensure pip and pipenv are installed.

  2. Clone repository:

  3. Fetch development dependencies: make install


The input might be a filename:

$ shrincols filename.txt -c 80

or a string:

$ shrincols "some text goes here ..." -c 80

The option -j forces the text to be justified:

$ shrincols filename.txt -c 80 -j

Altough the result will always be printed on the standard output, the option -o might be used for writing the result to a file.

$ shrincols filename.txt -c 40 -o output.txt

It is also possible to pipe standard output into the script’s standard input:

$ cat filename.txt | shrincols -c 40
