Scripting Screencasts

Castanaut is a DSL and library to script ScreenCasts in Ruby. Nifty!

Scripting the Shell

What if you could use Ruby instead of the shell? You can

local_dir = Rush::Box.new('localhost')['/Users/adam/server_logs/'].create servers = %w(www1 www2 www3).map { |n| Rush::Box.new(n) }
servers.each { |s| s['/var/log/nginx/access.log'].copy_to local_dir["#{s.host}_access.log"] } 

Rush - the Ruby shell
