Earlier today I was updating one of my bookmarklets when I ran into the need to convert a html string to a javascript variable.

I was going to create a quick webpage to do it for me, but that would have still required me to do a lot of manual copy-n-pasting (copying the html into a form, clicking a button, and pasting the result into a new file).

What I really wanted was a one liner that I could use in my terminal.

I ended up using a combination of cat and sed to get my desired output. The combined result is a shell script called: tojs.

You can install it by running the following commands:

NOTE:
THE FOLLOWING INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS ARE OUTDATED. SEE THE UPDATED SECTION BELOW.

sudo curl https://raw.github.com/skratchdot/tojs/1.1.0/tojs.sh -o /usr/local/bin/tojs
sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/tojs

UPDATED (12/27/2012):

tojs was converted to a node.js project on December 27th, 2012. Due to this fact, the installation instructions have changed. This project now requires npm and can be installed by running:

npm install -g tojs
