There are a lot of scripts stored on github. And you can run them directly by curling them into bash. To do so, you’ll need a link to the raw script (using the github page with the URL of the script brings in all the cruft, so you’ll need to find the raw text). To grab that, click on the page with the script and then right-click on Raw, as seen here:
Then, throw out a bash command followed by < and then the URL you just copied into your clipboard in parenthesis:
bash <(curl -Ls https://github.com/krypted/resetsoftwareupdate/raw/master/resetsoftwareupdate.sh)
New project on Github to run a bash script when a user clicks on a button
. This is pretty basic, easily customizable, lots of stuff you could add, and with a license I’m sure anyone can appreciate.
Hope you enjoy.
You can now find an ldif to csv converter done in Swift on my Github account at krypted/swift-ldif-csv
The project is pretty easy to use, simply define an input ldif file using the first positional parameter and then a csv using the -csv option. You can also use -a to define the attributes to migrate. Enjoy, fork, add, etc. For a quick download of the binary, click here
