bucket is like vim copy paste registers, only for the shell (bash and fish currently). You can save text clips in a bucket for later use. Though the name is bucket, it’s actually a bucket management system. There are multiple buckets involved, or you can use the default unnamed bucket.
- Use multiple buckets
- Add, list, delete, modify, search buckets
- Supports bash and fish shells
Installtion is manual at the moment. We raised a bug on the project to make it automated.
Currently, clone the GitHub project:
$ git clone https://github.com/alphapapa/bucket $ cd bucket
For bash, copy bucket.sh anywhere in your PATH, for example, in
For fish shell, run:
$ cp bucket.fish getopts.fish ~/.config/fish/functions/
For fish shell completion, you need to source the file:
$ source bucket.completions.fish
bucket is a very dynamic utility with great flexibility and numerous use cases.
Add text to default bucket:
$ bucket "Some text"
Pour from default bucket:
$ bucket Some text
Pipe to a named bucket “test” from default one:
$ bucket | bucket test
Pour from the named bucket:
$ bucket test
Pipe to a named bucket verbosely:
$ dmesg | grep error | bucket -v errors [ 7.817768] EXT4-fs (sdc1): re-mounted. Opts: errors=remount-ro,user_xattr
Append to a bucket:
$ bucket -a test "Some more text"
List all buckets
$ bucket -l // Verbosely, with only first line $ bucket -lv // Verbosely, will pull content $ bucket -lV
grep text in buckets:
$ bucket -g "some text"
Edit a bucket:
$ bucket -e test
Empty a bucket:
$ bucket -E test
Expire more than 2 weeks old buckets:
$ sleep 14d $ bucket -x
$ bucket -h
