shush iconshush 1.2.3

A command and optionally reports its output by mail
shush project runs a command and than reports its output by email. It is a useful wrapper around cron jobs.

shush was written to be a generic wrapper around cron jobs so that it can be applied to any command without having to modify it or create a custom wrapper for it.

In a sense, it solves a fairly simple problem, but it also brings some powerful features making it a useful tool beyond cron jobs.

Main features:

  • Multiple reports (for the output) may be defined
  • Decision to send a report (or not) is configurable based on:
  • Output content analysis (using regular expressions)
  • Command exit code
  • Size of output
  • Command execution duration
  • Support for plain text, enriched text and HTML report formatting. (The latter two allow rendering part of the output in bold.)
  • Various timeout actions such as notification and command termination
  • Locking support
  • Progress report logging via syslog
  • Automatic crontab file updating based on shush's configuration
