Shell-It provides a bunch of utilities like logging with level control, temp dir management, asset downloading, parameter assertions, map data structures, handling of remote asset installations with custom parameters and API/CLI interface.
This project was born during our job at creating smart scripts for installing complex products on tens of servers on large farms. We needed a single repository with versioned scripts/product installers so that with a simple command line on the server we could get a product installed or have an asset/configuration deployed on a product.
Browse the project git repository and check it out on an Eclipse IDE. The shellit project has some tests that show its capabilities. We use Eclipse for editing scripts. They are packaged automatically with Eclipse builders, deployed automatically to the local HTTP Preview server (simulating a repository) and then we can test then on remote machines by executing Ant scripts. Scripting is software engeneering!
