nosudo is a simple bash script that mimics some of sudo's features.


  • Supports some sudo options:
    • b,E,e,H,h,i,n,u should act approximately the same way as with sudo
    • -l always acts as if the user can run any command
    • K,k,p,U,V,v are ignored
    • A,C,g,L,P,r,S,s,t aren't implemented, nosudo exists if it encounters them
  • Resolves aliases (the real sudo doesn't do it), tested in bash and zsh.
  • Has a debug mode:
    • activated by setting the $DEGUB environment variable
    • logs to ~/nosudo-debug
