I have been trying to fix the issue of it showing name="laptop" on Gentoo so that it just shows Laptop, but my linux scripting sucks, other than that it works fine for me :)

Is it all working as it should

 

Anything else you want to see it produce?

Working fine for me :)

I've got a couple of suggestions if you're accepting though:

  • Swap the available/used values in RAM and Swap so that used comes first (e.g. RAM (available/used): 1.2GiB / 8GiB. Putting the "used" value first makes it more intuitive.
  • Maybe detect if the output is a file (rather than the console), and if so remove the colouring from the output and omit the screenshot?
    For example:
    karl@PHOBOS (~) -> haggis-stats > output.txt
    karl@PHOBOS (~) -> cat output.txt
    <output>
    karl@PHOBOS (~) -> |
    
  • Use environment variables to determine where to save the screenshot. For example setting "export HAGGIS_STATS_SCREENSHOT_DIR="~/Pictures/Screenshots" should force screenshots to be saved in that directory, rather than in my current working directory.
  • Use an environment variable to specify the default action of the script. For example setting "export HAGGIS_STATS_DISABLE_SCREENSHOT=1" in my .zshrc should stop the script from screenshotting by default.

And that is one reason that you're an m.v.c. and one reason why I switched from Fedora to Debian lol You'e done a great job in the Linux section :)

 

Exactly why I even tried Debian was from seeing how much help xorangeman/Karl helped here in these forums! :)

 

Him alone, is way better than that crap Ubuntu forum and I've never had any luck with any derivative of Ubuntu anyway either.

 

Used to like Zenwalk a whole lot but as usual, simply tired of switching from Windows to Linux. Still use Windows mainly but have Wheezy on 2 machines that haven't gotten screwed up since installing over a year ago! I've never had a Linux distro last that long that didn't get messed up some way simply by an update of some type.

 

Might even have to give this script a try just to have something new to play with!!

 

Thanks guys :)

working my way through this

 

Switched the Used and Total

 

also tried the display with no colors for files

 

file is at http://www.haggistech.co.uk/haggis-stats.pl

 

so could you try

haggis-stats file > /path/to/file.txt

is this what you meant?

ok

 

I have done

 

  • Swap the available/used values in RAM and Swap so that used comes first (e.g. RAM (available/used): 1.2GiB / 8GiB. Putting the "used" value first makes it more intuitive.
  • Maybe detect if the output is a file (rather than the console), and if so remove the colouring from the output and omit the screenshot?
  • Use environment variables to determine where to save the screenshot. For example setting "export HAGGIS_STATS_SCREENSHOT_DIR="~/Pictures/Screenshots" should force screenshots to be saved in that directory, rather than in my current working directory.

anyone willing to test for me?

Hey dude, I'll give it a try this weekend hopefully. I'm stuck in the middle of a tight deadline so I've literally been going between my bed and the office.

Finally got around to checking this stuff out last night. Looks good! Everything seems to work fine. My only comment is that it seems a bit unecessary to have to do this...

haggis-stats file > output.txt

... when you can detect automatically whether or not output is being redirected to a file, allowing you to simply do this ...

haggis-stats > output.txt

Otherwise, it all looks sweet :)

Please don't take my comment as a downer, you've done a great job with this. Just let me know when you're ready to do a release and I'll update the Arch AUR package :)

Yeah that would be nice. The AUR doesn't provide those stats though :(. Is there anything on Github that tells you?
