@chrisatx nope, the settings file was moved to %USERPROFILE%\.config\scoop\config.json

nice, a gitter.im channel! :+1: although it'd be nice if there was an equivalent #scoop on freenode.net too :confused:
Quick question: can one do something like scoop install foo bar baz?
or does one need to serialize it?
Richard Kuhnt
@r15ch13
@bkmdev there is a discord :D yes you can run the install command like that.

How do you resolve naming conflicts? For example, I use both gow and sysinternals, and they both have a du.exe. I want the gow one, not the sysinternals one.
(and the du.exe shim that exists is the sysinternals one)
Uninstalling and reinstalling gow obviously works, but this breaks as soon as sysinternals updates and snags the du.exe file again. I'm hoping there's a more robust solution.

@rwarren scoop reset gow will recreate the shims and the du.exe of sysinternals will be overwritten.

I am seeing this effect as well but only if the SCOOP environment variable is set. If I leave it in my %HOME% all works well. Any ideas?

@attilastrba
The reason is that the worktree variable is set in git config with the latest git version. For me seems to be a git bug created a ticket in github: git-for-windows/git#2569

Is there a way to write a manifest without a version attribute and rather just use checkver when you do scoop install my-app?
Gunnar Lilleaasen
@heksesang
Also, how do I know where the various variables are applicable (e.g. $version, $matchHead etc.)? Where does it pull \$version from? The documentation on those variables leaves a lot to be desired IMO.

I want to add a software called Wormhole. But I don't know why the code above not work.

Does scoop have a "reinstall" command?
Whenever an install fails I already need to do uninstall, then install. Would be nice to combine both.

Hi Everybody. Super impressed with Scoop, wondering why I didn't installed it before. Quick question: is there a way to tell Scoop not to populate the windows start>programs>scoop folder?. checked the documentation but doesn't say anything about that.

@Moving-Electrons No there isn’t, but it would be a nice option to have

scoop isn't creating shims for nodejs and yarn. I've tried uninstalling and installing several times. I've tried scoop reset nodejs, and scoop reset *, still no luck. The problem is that after scoop reset nodejs, I can type the node command and it would recognize it, but once I close the terminal and try the node command again, it doesn't recognize it.
Here's my output for scoop reset *
