    There's not really much to it; it's just an example of extending ksh with more builtins, which is simple by design. (I really miss what this did for Sun's dbx debugger — instead of being inside some tool with yet another idiosyncratic command language, your shell just grew commands for interacting with the process being debugged.)

  • GitHub repo yad

    Yet Another Dialog

    I like yad[0] for this. For example, I use it to present a GUI color picker to change/insert colors in Vim (via a plugin called vCoolor[1]). I also use it in some i3/sway scripts that need user input or to show a progress bar.
