Making SwitchTower work with csh (and other non-posix shells


#1

I tried using ST, but it didn’t work with the csh shell. Today I
decided to make it work, and came up with the very simple solution of
wrapping the failed commands inside a bash instance. Blog post is
http://www.flpr.org/articles/2006/03/02/make-switchtower-work-with-csh-hack

Solution (so you don’t have to read the blog post :slight_smile: is to edit
$gems_dir/switchtower-1.0.1/lib/switchtower/scm/base.rb (line 34) to
read:

command = <<-STR
/usr/local/bin/bash -c
'if [[ ! -d #{configuration.release_path} ]]; then
#{guts}

#{logging_commands(directory)}

fi’
STR

So if you want to use SwitchTower along with csh, now you can.
