Today I was attempting to scope some css to an id. I found scopify-cli which does this. I installed it and attempted to run it.
It gave me an error. I looked in the pull requests and found #1. It updates the version of a few dependencies and it works again.
I executed it. The css in question was bulma.min.css.
cat bulma.min.css | scopify-cli '#todorender'
However, I made a mistake. This tool does not output to stdout. It writes to the current directory. It scopified almost every CSS file in my home directory until I noticed what was wrong and ^C'd it.
Now I needed to fix this mess. I have hourly backups with borgbackup, but I needed to use them and only extract css files. I looked up the documentation and spent ~20 minutes trying to make
--exclude work. I then found --pattern and spent another 10 minutes trying to make that work. Every time it wouldn't match anything. I eventually found that I needed to use
I ended up with the following command:
borg extract --dry-run --list /data/Backups/borg/home/ssd::2020-11-06T20:00:02 'home/wingy/Code' --exclude 're:^((?!\.css).)*$'
I tested that it outputted the correct files and removed the
--dry-run and did it again. Everything ended up being fine.
