Far Manager v3 and some plugins bootstrap script

Post by przemoc »

Lately I've noticed that my Far and plugins set diverged slightly on different computers, so I decided today to create kind of bootstrap script, so I could easily recreate them.

far3-bootstrap.sh

It's maybe not the cleanest script and lacks a bit of scaffolding to even further ease adding plugins, but it's already usable.

Currently following plugins are added:
  • Integrity Checker
  • Regular Expression Search
  • FarPlugs:
    - Audio Player
    - CoderCalc
    - Disk Menu Editor
    - File Unlock
    - HashCalc
    - Hexitor
    - Hunspell
    - Image Viewer
    - JClassInfo
    - Media Info
    - Name Editor
    - PE Analyzer
    - PortaDev
    - Renewal
    - Sniffer
    - Sqlite DB
    - Sudo
    - TextConv
    - Torrent Info
Instructions copied from the script:

Code: Select all

# Create directory dedicated for Far bootstrapping and go into it.
# Download here busybox-w32:
#  http://frippery.org/files/busybox/busybox.exe
# Download here this script:
#  https://raw.githubusercontent.com/przemoc/far3-bootstrap/master/far3-bootstrap.sh
# Run following command:
#  busybox sh far3-bootstrap.sh
# Run Far from Far.x?? directory and further update plugins using Renewal (via F11).

Today I finally updated the script, so it works now with enforced HTTPS on sourceforge, where FarPlugs live. Not sure when they made the change, but it's possible that it was broken for some considerable time...
Enjoy! :)

far3-bootstrap.sh has been finally updated again and works (at least for me). Download it together with recent busybox.exe and run:

Code: Select all

busybox sh far3-bootstrap.sh
to obtain latest stable Far with bunch of useful plugins in one go.

far3-bootstrap has been updated to work again. Additionally, using on Windows has been simplified.

How to use it?
Download zip, extract its content and go into newly created directory:
https://github.com/przemoc/far3-bootstr ... all/master
On Windows run:

Code: Select all

far3-bootstrap.cmd
On Linux run:

Code: Select all

far3-bootstrap.sh
Run Far from Far.x?? directory and further update plugins using Renewal (via F11).

EDIT:
Shortened URL for ZIP has been created for easier use:
https://git.io/far3-bootstrap.zip
