Simple dialog scripting with zenity
did you ever want to create a dialog for your favorite commandline tool or are you tired of typing the same 2 inch command every time again?
Then zenity can make your life much easier!
This tool comes with a set of configurable dialog boxes from simpe info-, warning- and error-boxes to complex file-selection, progress-bar or forms.
I’ve build a small wrapper to get rid of the commandline tool youtube-dl for example.
The wrapper pops up a input-box for the source url and a directory-selection dialog for the destionation folder. Make a desktop- or menu-shortcut to it and everything else will runs in the background.
Hope it helps,
