The CLI Template

This template displays the passed argument, cmd, at a simulated command line.

NOTE: The indent argument is now available. To indent the line, pass indent=2 or similar:

{{cli | indent=2 | ls -lah}}

to produce:

root@som9x25:~# ls -lah

Use it like this:

{{cli | ls -la}}

to produce:

root@som9x25:~# ls -la

Choose the PWD (Present Working Directory) like this:

{{cli | ls -la | pwd=/home/user}}

to produce:

root@som9x25:/home/user# ls -la

Choose the hostname like this:

{{cli | ls -la | hostname=desktop}}

to produce:

root@desktop:~# ls -la

Choose the username like this:

{{cli | ls -la | username=developer}}

to produce:

developer@som9x25:~# ls -la

Combine them like this:

{{cli | ls -la | username=developer | hostname=desktop | pwd=/usr/local/bin}}

to produce:

developer@desktop:/usr/local/bin# ls -la

Use the {{!}} template to pass a pipe character for display, like this:

{{cli | username=developer | hostname=desktop | pwd=/usr/local/bin | ifconfig {{!}} grep eth0 }}

to produce:

developer@desktop:/usr/local/bin# ifconfig | grep eth0

Use the = HTML tag in place of an equals sign:

{{cli | username=joeknows | hostname=squat | pwd=/usr/share/files | export PS1='\[\e[0;32m\]\u\[\033[01;37m\]@\[\e[0;36m\]\h\[\e[0;37m\]:\[\e[01;36m\]\w\[\e[01;33m\] \$\[\e[m\] ' }}

to produce:

joeknows@squat:/usr/share/files# export PS1='\[\e[0;32m\]\u\[\033[01;37m\]@\[\e[0;36m\]\h\[\e[0;37m\]:\[\e[01;36m\]\w\[\e[01;33m\] \$\[\e[m\] '

To deal with double closing curly braces, surround them with the <nowiki> tag:

{{cli | username=some | hostname=body | pwd=/stop/me | echo 'My name is ${HOSTNAME}' {{!}} sed 's/is/was/g' {{!}} awk '{ print $1 $4 '$(basename /etc/profile)' '$(echo ${PS${SHLVL<nowiki>}}</nowiki>' '}' }}

to produce:

some@body:/stop/me# echo 'My name is ${HOSTNAME}' | sed 's/is/was/g' | awk '{ print $1 $4 '$(basename /etc/profile)' '$(echo ${PS${SHLVL}}' '}'
