Is this documented somewhere? We should add this if it's not. It helps beginners and occasional users of the short commands.

The general Bash-it readme has a list of the commands (including help), but it does not go into any detail :worried: I always wanted to move more documentation to the Wiki, but haven't had the time for that yet... So many other things to do.
Hello everyone. I had a quick question. Is a feature like autosuggestion which zsh and fish have technically possibly to be built for bash-it as a plugin or does it exist?
Nils Winkler
There has been a discussion on this over here: Bash-it/bash-it#894

Hey folks, I have a script that needs to be passed a private key (as text). What's a safe way to call it?
it is not a long running program btw
hey guys
Grisha Prokopiv

Hi guys,
i run a script like: FOO_ENV_VARIABLE=int /usr/local/script.sh
and my script looks like:

   echo "Foo terminating...."
   kill $pid
   wait "$pid"

trap 'termination' INT

exec foo.java.application.MainClass &
wait $restorePID

and the goal is to execute 'termination' function and wait until proccess with pid end when Ctrl+C pressed,
and only then close executing
It works when i run that script like a: bash foo.script and then press Ctrl+C it works, i see echo "Foo terminating" in console.
but when i run that script as: FOO_ENV_VARIABLE=int /usr/local/script.sh it does not works, i do not see echo "Foo terminating"

Could some please what should be changed in that script to make it works with a FOO_ENV_VARIABLE=int /usr/local/script.sh

@neetjn works only on integer value.

How to program Bash command history completion to be assigned to any certain key on keyboard? So the request:
UP key must complete the current typed command to be whole command line that has been done and exist in comman history.

Hello, it is possible to search word from the end in the manual?
Scott Dillon
you can use / + search term to find it in the man page. Then use n or shift + n to search forwards/backwards.
I assumed you meant man page when you said manual...

Hey how are you! can i ask about bash in this group?

Can anyone help me with string escaping? I have a script that runs as the root user when my server bootstraps. At the end of that script, I echo a line to the ubuntu user's ~/.zshrc file. My problem is that the colors codes in the string evaluate when the bootstrap script runs, but I need those colors to not be evaulated until the user logs in and the ~/.zshrc file is read. More detail here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/52415887/installing-oh-my-zsh-for-a-different-user-as-root-in-cloud-init-script

I solved by using bash variables to postpone the evaluation of the colors/commands :D
Hello, I use zsh and a plugin. I created an alias for said command. I want to run that command as a keyboard shortcut in KDE. I tried changing script to !#/bin/zsh. I always get message saying command not found. How do I get bash/she to recognise zsh plugins and commands?

Is there a Git shortcut for gc! --no-edit? (equivalent to "git commit --amend --no-edit")
Not really, right? (source) -- Should we add one?
I have a question regarding using nohup on bash process. Is this the right channel ?

Is there a way to locate your own theme, other than ‘themes’ directory?

@bittner Oh, my apologies! I’ll remove the clutter.

using declarative associate arrays, how do I loop in order? my code:
declare -A migration8=(
declare -A migration9=(
    [CSV_COLUMNS]='created_at,updated_at,first_name [null if blanks],last_name [null if blanks],email,phone_number [null if blanks],meta_id,meta_type,state'
declare -A migration10=(
declare -A migration11=(


declare -n migration
for migration in ${!migration@}
do {
    export CSV_FILE=${migration[CSV_FILE]}
    export CSV_COLUMNS=${migration[CSV_COLUMNS]}
    export TARGET_TABLE=${migration[TARGET_TABLE]}
    export TARGET_COLUMNS=${migration[TARGET_COLUMNS]}

    pgloader template.sql
} done

@benydc Is this a general question about Bash? Note that this Gitter room is about Bash-it. (Not about Bash and Bash concepts.)

Hey guys, just wondering how does bash-it completion work? I tried bash-it enable completion git to enable git completion, sourced my bash_profile, and it didn't seem to do anything. However, sourcing the git completion directly via source "$BASH_IT"/completion/available/git.completion.bash does the trick

basicly my objectives is to launch "ui.exe" wich is a windows form made in C# and compiled earlier. Maybe i didnt understand totaly the purpose of "case $1 in start". wich i understood like a "Switch" statement but i dont get why doesnt it launch when i ./that_script but it work when i ./ui.exe
Thanks again everyone, cya :)
Joseph Leroux
(just in case : i had an 'Echo "p"' right before the line 14, it doesnt even print. i swear it is frustrating ^^)
Peter Bittner
@JosephLerouxBook TL;DR It may be that the double semicolon ;; must be indented. Take a look at other example out in the wild, e.g. https://gist.github.com/drmalex07/298ab26c06ecf401f66c

In order to not bother the people working on Bash-It, i made a community to help people with shell (and so bash). Thanks guys. Cya
Hi @Here
When I try to compute 2**64 in a bash script I’m getting -9223372036854775808 instead of positive number. How can I fiw this ? Thanks

hey looking for some help writing a function. I want to be able to pipe data into it and echo the line and then write to a file.
I wrote this, but I want the user to see it without the TS, script and user (basically just the line)

function log () {
  while read -r line; do
    echo "$(date "+%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S") $scriptName:$USER --- $line"
  done |tee -a $logFile 2>&1

current output to file and screen is

flyboy1565@linux:~$ echo "TEST" |log
2019-08-15 13:27:07 test.sh:flyboy1565 --- TEST
any help would be great
log() { while read -r line; do echo "${line}" done | tee -a $logFile 2>&1 }
hey there! quick question. I am calling a function that takes a bit. So i m using a kind of progress bar i found around, dont want to waste to much time on it.
set_group_flag & PID=$! #simulate a long process
The problem is that when the 1st process has something to print it all breaks apart visually
how can i keep the functions output and print it in the end?
