BashOOP

This idea was inspired from https://stackoverflow.com/a/40981277 in order to be adapted into making a proper OOP with constructors, properties and namespace system for bash.

Reference:

  • .shn: SHell Namespace
  • .shc: SHell Class

Example syntax:

Declaring objects.

script.sh: This is the main script which will use our objects.

. $OOP_ROOT/oop.sh # Import library.

importNamespace Example.shn

Example.Object t "Test"

Example.shn: This file declares our namespace and all the objects within it.

# Namespace declaration.
namespace Example
# If namespace is set to null (no argument), then the object will be declared globally.
# Otherwise, the object will be declared within the namespace.

# Object declaration, from class name to file name.
class Object "Object.shc"

Object.shc: This file will contain the object code.

# Property declaration
property Object.name

# Optional constructor.
Object.constructor() {
    Object.name = $1
}

# Example function
Object.print() {
    echo "Example OOP from $($this.name)!"
}
