Bash Profile

Bash profile Automation

Download this html file to your computer, Convert all html characters back to ascii. Recode is used for characters such as carrots, < >. Try it without recode to see for yourself.

sudo apt install curl
sudo apt install recode
curl | recode html..ascii > /tmp/.bashrc

Only grab the bash profile from the html file we downloaded programatically. I added little automation helpers: removeMeAutmationHelper

sed -n '/removeMeAutmationHelper/,/removeMeAutmationHelper/p' /tmp/.bashrc  | grep -v "#removeMeAutmationHelper" > ~/.bashrc

Activate this new bash profile

source ~/.bashrc

Here is a copy and paste of the above if you've been through this all before.

sudo apt install curl -y
sudo apt install recode -y
curl | recode html..ascii > /tmp/.bashrc
sed -n '/removeMeAutmationHelper*/,/removeMeAutmationHelper/p' /tmp/.bashrc  | grep -v "#removeMeAutmationHelper" > ~/.bashrc
source ~/.bashrc


Actual Profile

Here is my actual bash profile, short and sweet.

if [ -f /etc/bashrc ]; then
