    8 projects | | 9 Feb 2024
    If I want to write better shell scripts I usually run shellcheck and adjust accordingly or if I need facilities not provided by the shell i switch to a full fledged programming language. Ans oh yes, `sh` is present almost on every BSD and Linux box for free so I consider it an important thing to at least be comfortable with.


  • How I use Nix in my Elm projects
    8 projects | | 19 Dec 2023
    When I run nix-shell at the root of the project it puts me in a Nix shell that contains, among other programs, caddy and shellcheck. Notice that in the shellHook I add the project's shell scripts to the PATH. So once I'm in the Nix shell I can, among other things:

    I have also seen some projects on github like ShellCheck which first make a library, expose all the modules and then simple add that do build-depends of the final executable. Is this the recommended approach than having just one executable and adding all the modules to other-modules:?

  • Is there a syntax checker?
    2 projects | /r/groff | 24 Oct 2023
    Similar to for instance shellcheck to check the syntax of shell scripts, is there an equivalent for the set of roff commands typically used in a (Linux) man page? I'm aware that e.g. pandoc permits the conversion of an other format (e.g., org) to both roff man and roff ms.
