akostadinov / find_follow.rb
Last active Aug 29, 2015
ruby implementation of find that follows symbolic links; depth first order; raises if broken links or cycles are met
View find_follow.rb
* ruby implementation of find that follows symbolic directory links
* tested on ruby 1.9.3, ruby 2.0 and jruby on Fedora 20 linux
* you can use Find.prune
* detect symlinks to dirs by path "/" suffix; does nothing with files so `symlink?` method is working fine
* depth first order
* detects cycles and raises an error
* raises on broken links
* uses recursion in the `do_find` proc when directory links are met (takes a lot of nested links until SystemStackError, that's practically never)
View cp_r_dereference.rb
based on find_follow.rb :
* use like: cp_r_dereference 'src', 'dst'
Note: if directory `src` content is copied instead of the full dir. i.e. you end up
with `dst/*` instead of `dst/basename(src)/*`

hack cucumber to have an entry point to debug abd continue scenario after failure
View cucumber_pry
# execute this code to fall into a pry session upoon step failure
# works only with cucumber 1.3
# so far for 2.0 best similar approach is to us the After hook
# fall into pry/buybug if scenario.failed? is true
# After hook works for 1.3 as well

## first make sure we don't lose original accept method

View fb2ical.php
original code by cogitom:
This script reads future events (plus several days into the past) from Facebook pages
and creates a subscribable iCalendar
Improvements upon the original version:
- avoid setting DTEND field if facebook event lacks an end time

find duplicate files (WIP)
View arch_comp.rb
require 'fileutils'
# this is ugly quickly hacked script, not very nice and reliable at the moment
# it finds what files from one archive need to be backed-up (i.e. are not present in some other archive dir)
# $ find new_dir -type f > arch.txt
# $ find old_dir -type f > arch_old.txt
# `find -name ".?*" -prune -o -type f` to avoid hidden files
# cat to_arch.txt | xargs -d "\n" stat -c "%s" | awk '{size+=$1} END {print size}' # to see size of files to copy
# sudo rsync -avx --files-from=to_arch.txt ./ /path/to/store/backup
# TODO: get files fast hash (md5?) and compare based on it; avoid external tools like find
