Visual Bash describes an interactive script for Bash that uses a graphical user interface, or "GUI". They are used because bash does not have a native GUI of its own, and therefore provide an opportunity to take advantage of the more user-friendly aspects of graphical user interfaces, and combine this with the power and versatility of Bash.
Method for script production
The following method can be used to generate a visual bash application.
- You use a GUI designer, which is currently an unmodified version of Kommander, a KDE tool, to create the GUI.
- The message handlers in the Kommander GUI execute functions in a bash script.
- This uses functions in a bash script to execute the events like button clicks drop-down changes etc.
- The Bash script talks back to the controls on the GUI using command line messages which interact using DCOP protocol.
The script itself can be produced using a text editor.
