Encode and decode files through the standard input/output
Encode and decode files through standard input/output.
Encode files piping them into
$ std_encode -t input_test.txt >>>>>>>>>> START t input_test.txt Some test text file <<<<<<<<<< END
The encoded text can be then decoded and saved with
$ std_encode -t input_test.txt | std_decode ######### DECODED FILE input_test.txt $ cat input_test.txt Some test text file
The package is available in PyPI
pip install std-encode
- A log shows that a file has been decoded
- Text and binary files are supported (binary are default).
std_decodeis capable of decoding more than one file in the same stream
- Any line in the stream that's not part of a file will be replicated in the standard output.
Why is this useful for?
In some cases, standard input/output is a convenient and easy way of communication. Transfering a file is not as simple.
For example, the problem that originated it was to retrieve files from a docker container running in Kubernetes. Obtaining the text log is easy calling
docker logs or
kubectl logs, but retrieving files requires more plumbing.
In the operation, while creating logs, multiple files can be encoded, and then all will be retrieved piping the logs through
std_decode, generating a resulting log like this one:
