How to add new software

  1. Create a script file anywhere (also in a nested directory) inside software/ (e.g., software/example.rb). (Not necessarily in Ruby, but encouraged. Shell/Python/JavaScript are also welcome.)
  2. Make sure it's executable (chmod +x software/example.rb).
  3. Make sure it has correct shebang (e.g., #!/System/Library/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/Versions/Current/usr/bin/ruby for Ruby, #!/bin/sh for Shell, etc.).
  4. Make sure they're self executable, meaning they work even if you run them directly like ./software/example.rb rather than through bin/dotfiles.
  5. Try to write your script as less order dependent as possible related to order software.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
