I’ve been writing a few bash scripts and some Nim command line utilities.
You can run a script from the folder which contains the script. Here’s an example file structure:
~/bin/ ├── git-reset-author.sh └── readme_template
When I’m inside the
~/bin directory, I can type into the terminal:
But what if I want to navigate to a different folder on my machine and run the script from that location?
fish: unknown command readme_template
The shell doesn’t find the program.
You can add the folder with your scripts to your user path.
You have to add it to your [shell configuration][linuxizes], e.g.
~/.bashrc if you want to have it work across reboots.
Fish has a variable called
fish_user_paths to which you can prepend the folder with your scripts:
set -U fish_user_paths $HOME/bin $fish_user_paths
