Re: Recommendations for a Linux tool-writing approach?

I'm no expert but, my approach would probably be something like:
Python 2x scripts for local tools (possibly Ruby, just something object
oriented and readable, that is to say, not Bash)
If you need a UI, I'd recommend going web only. Python and Django, or
Flask. (I'd personally avoid PHP) You may also want to look at Node as a
platform.

Just my 2 bits :)

Any recommendations for a Linux tool-writing approach? I am more of a
scripting guy than a programmer but I want to take it to the next level.

For context, I need to write a few SANS gold papers for the Masters
program and want to author some Linux tools related to the papers I write
(subjects to be determined). I’m looking at this as an opportunity to
improve my intermediate Linux skills while also adding some programming
skills. I’m thinking of going with straight-up bash and maybe use some
Python, Ruby or Perl but I would love to get some ideas from some of you
experts before diving in. It would be great to learn how to make a UI that
can run various back-end scripts.

Thanks in advance for your help.
