firefox-mua-sort-containers - Sort Firefox Multi-Account Containers add-on's containers
This document describes version 0.015 of firefox-mua-sort-containers (from Perl distribution App-FirefoxMultiAccountContainersUtils), released on 2022-10-04.
firefox-mua-sort-containers [--debug|--log-level=level|--quiet|--trace|--verbose] [--dry-run|-n] [--format=name|--json] [--(no)naked-res] [--page-result[=program]|--view-result[=program]] [(--sort-arg=str)+|--sort-args-json=json|(-A=str)+] [--sort-sub=sortsub::spec|-S=sortsub::spec] -- <profile>
This utility was written when the Firefox Multi-Account Containers add-on does not provide a way to reorder the containers. Now it does; you can click Manage Containers then use the hamburger button to drag the containers up and down to reorder.
However, this utility is still useful particularly when you have lots of containers and want to sort it in some way. This utility provides a flexible sorting mechanism via using <pm:Sort:Sub> modules. For example:
% firefox-mua-sort-containers MYPROFILE
% firefox-mua-sort-containers MYPROFILE -S by_example -A example=foo,bar,baz,qux
will first sort your containers asciibetically, then put specific containers that you use often (foo, bar, baz, qux) at the top.
* marks required options.
Can also be specified as the 1st command-line argument.
Arguments to pass to the Sort::Sub::* routine.
Can be specified multiple times.
Arguments to pass to the Sort::Sub::* routine (JSON-encoded).
Name of a Sort::Sub::* module (without the prefix).
Shortcut for --log-level=debug.
Set log level.
By default, these log levels are available (in order of increasing level of importance, from least important to most): trace, debug, info, warn/warning, error, fatal. By default, the level is usually set to warn, which means that log statements with level info and less important levels will not be shown. To increase verbosity, choose info, debug, or trace.
For more details on log level and logging, as well as how new logging levels can be defined or existing ones modified, see Log::ger.
Shortcut for --log-level=error.
Shortcut for --log-level=trace.
Shortcut for --log-level=info.
Choose output format, e.g. json, text.
Output can be displayed in multiple formats, and a suitable default format is chosen depending on the application and/or whether output destination is interactive terminal (i.e. whether output is piped). This option specifically chooses an output format.
Set output format to json.
When outputing as JSON, strip result envelope.
By default, when outputing as JSON, the full enveloped result is returned, e.g.:
The reason is so you can get the status (1st element), status message (2nd element) as well as result metadata/extra result (4th element) instead of just the result (3rd element). However, sometimes you want just the result, e.g. when you want to pipe the result for more post-processing. In this case you can use --naked-res so you just get:
Filter output through a pager.
This option will pipe the output to a specified pager program. If pager program is not specified, a suitable default e.g. less is chosen.
View output using a viewer.
This option will first save the output to a temporary file, then open a viewer program to view the temporary file. If a viewer program is not chosen, a suitable default, e.g. the browser, is chosen.
Run in simulation mode (also via DRY_RUN=1).
Display help message and exit.
Display program's version and exit.
This script has shell tab completion capability with support for several shells.
To activate bash completion for this script, put:
complete -C firefox-mua-sort-containers firefox-mua-sort-containers
in your bash startup (e.g. ~/.bashrc). Your next shell session will then recognize tab completion for the command. Or, you can also directly execute the line above in your shell to activate immediately.
It is recommended, however, that you install modules using cpanm-shcompgen which can activate shell completion for scripts immediately.
To activate tcsh completion for this script, put:
complete firefox-mua-sort-containers 'p/*/`firefox-mua-sort-containers`/'
in your tcsh startup (e.g. ~/.tcshrc). Your next shell session will then recognize tab completion for the command. Or, you can also directly execute the line above in your shell to activate immediately.
It is also recommended to install shcompgen (see above).
For fish and zsh, install shcompgen as described above.

Source repository is at https://github.com/perlancar/perl-App-FirefoxMultiAccountContainersUtils.
To contribute, you can send patches by email/via RT, or send pull requests on GitHub.
Most of the time, you don't need to build the distribution yourself. You can simply modify the code, then test via:
% prove -l
If you want to build the distribution (e.g. to try to install it locally on your system), you can install Dist::Zilla, Dist::Zilla::PluginBundle::Author::PERLANCAR, Pod::Weaver::PluginBundle::Author::PERLANCAR, and sometimes one or two other Dist::Zilla- and/or Pod::Weaver plugins. Any additional steps required beyond that are considered a bug and can be reported to me.
