Beyond Putting a Burger In Your Shell

So I saw a blog post today titled “put a burger in your shell”, which showed how to use the emoji characters in Unicode 6.1 to put a cheeseburger in your terminal.

That got me to thinking: Icons can be a simple, quick-to-parse, compact means of conveying information. Perhaps some of the emoji could be used for a more practical purpose. So, I have put together a little project called BashFu to do just that.

Here’s an image showing off all the current widgets:

At some point soon, I’ll be adding some icons for git repo status and the like.

In the meantime, hit the BashFu project page for source and more details.
