Prototype shell for interacting with HP 50G from a Linux machine. I find myself most productive when I don’t have to keep reaching for the mouse to drag and drop resources or interact with a program. This is the motivation for developing hp50gshell. It uses the awesome cmd2 package to allow me to create a CLI for efficient interaction. It is still in alpha, but quite usable.

Here is a picture showing the environment it provides.

Shell display

It provides tools for file transfer, object creation and deletion. It borrows from traditional Unix commands (ls, cd, mkdir, cat etc) to make you feel right at home. Command line completion works pretty well also.

It is being actively developed. Try it out and let me know how it works for you.
