Show HN: Marcel – A Modern Shell

Show HN: Marcel – A Modern Shell Marcel is a shell. It is intended to be familiar to anyone who knows bash, but it emphasizes piping objects between commands, instead of strings.

Python would be a fine scripting language if the integration with shell commands were better. So I made marcel's capabilities available as a module, marcel.api. The integration is extremely clean, (IMHO). To do the above example in Python: from marcel.api import * for file in ls(recursive=True) | select(lambda file: now() - file.mtime < days(1)): print(file) Check it out here: June 4, 2020 at 05:42PM
