Functions, shell (lite).

Pre-alpha, see b25c535b582f8ecb2632e48b2c940565e05cc3d1 for roadmap.
Development has diverged from roadmap, though goals are intact, path will differ.

This repo is mostly about automating a robust, minimal, sustainably sourced build pipeline.
...though ultimately, this is a bash aliases handler, and should be treated as such.


Get the shim: wget -o shim.src

Clone the repo:
mkdir -p ~/run/fsh && cd ~/run.fsh && git remote set-url fsh && git fetch fsh dev && git checkout dev

Source the shimfile:

. ~/run/system/fsh/shim.src

Works best in conjunction with a git project, try fet or fd, or ff to do fsh dev work.


Once you've sourced the shimfile, use shimMe to make it semi-permanent.

This will move any existing file at ~/.bash_aliases to ~/.bash_aliases.bak, sourcing that file if it exists, and putting a symbolic link from the contents of the current fDir variable in place of the aforementioned file.

In case that was as difficult to follow as it was to write, you'll end up with a symbolic link from ~/.bash_aliases to wherever you've got shim.src stashed away, and any previous aliases will override any fsh defaults, to preserve customization continuity.


in an ideal world, this would look something like

bash <(curl -s

This executes the bootstrapper in a subshell,
you can start using f commands in new shells immediately.

if you're the cautious type,
you can clone, build, and install it after verifying the hash (see [doc/]).

currently, something akin to
mkdir -p ~/run/fsh && cd ~/run/fsh && git clone -b dev . && . ~/run/fsh/shim.src
will probably work to get you testing, but your experience on the dev branch may vary wildly.

Things Which May Work


Chronostamp (stk/ Loading the shim (. shim.src) Viewing git summary (fet) <-- requires shim to be loaded and git (among other operational dependencies) to be installed.

The kanbash cluster works-ish, but requires manual install and config of kanban.bash. Task tracking use migrating to taskwarrior (from kanban.bash), but continuied development and reswap once feature parity is achieved is encouraged.

Things Which Most Likely Don't Work

...this comment "camelCase for variables, lowercase for functions" is an ideal, with low adoption.

The xtrace utility may break everything, or it may work for your use case. Know what you're using before you delve.


The shim, as installed by the quickstart command, allows the use of aliases (see core/ and most fsh/tool scripts, but worry-free persistence needs the build service installed, and many commands are for system administration, eg shutgrade.

Build service installation is a whole kettle of worms, and needs a proper install process hacked out.


Include in your scripts with:
shopt -s expand_aliases; . path/to/
or execute piecemeal as described in #quickstart
