Free Software Directory:Participate/Script aid

From Free Software Directory
Jump to: navigation, search


This script aims to help contributors on finding things that might be needed to consider during evaluation of the project/software.

For example, it lists all the MIME/media types of files in the current directory, so that one can find cases of files without complete and corresponding source and also find JavaScript files to look or insert GNU LibreJS syntax.

It also scans files for words related to DOM Level 0 event handlers, so that the contributor can also evaluate if there is need to add GNU LibreJS syntax.

The output is in CSV format. You can use GNU Awk to parse or query such files, before doing so, set FPAT to ([^,]*)|(\"[^\"]+\") and RS to \r\n, This variable setting was based on the related section in the GNU Awk User's Guide and on Awk's Texinfo/Info page.

You're welcome to contribute to this script and add your name and contact information to the copyright notice of the script.


Best if you take the complete corresponding source of the project being evaluated (e.g.: when using git clone, you can accomplish this using the --recursive option.

git clone --recursive [Some git repository.]
cd [Directory created by git]
[Script aid.] > [Desired text file to store output.]; printf '\a'

printf '\a' can be replaced by a command to play an audio file of your choice.

Now leave the script to do its work and wait for the sound clue to continue working on the evaluation.


  • The script is originally meant to be POSIX-compliant.
  • The script always takes the current working directory as basis of operation.
  • Be aware of false-positives.
  • Due to our lack of knowledge on various spoken languages, some things might not be found by the script.
