    If you're only occasionally writing shell scripts, Amber may not be a priority for you. In such cases, linting tools like ShellCheck could be more beneficial. However, if you find yourself frequently writing shell scripts, to the point where you're considering Python or Ruby for better re-usability, then Amber is definitely worth your attention.

    As carlinigraphy points out, shellcheck [0] exists, and can easily be put into pre-commits, a CI pipeline, etc. This would have almost certainly flagged your problem immediately.

    > I would be willing to learn a sane language, but bash isn't one.

    It's a general language that has to be both an interactive interpreter and script executor, and it needs to support a huge variety of architectures and kernel versions, as well as historical decisions. It's going to have some cruft.

    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.
