hbcxmlgen is a Bash script for creating the Homebrew Channel's meta.xml files.
Along with just making the meta.xml file, it also
- can be installed to
/usr/binso you can run it from anywhere just by typing
- checks if meta.xml already exists in the current directory, and asks if you want to overwrite it
- notifies you if you need write permissions to write in the current directory before you enter all the meta.xml information
- enforces the entering of the release date by making sure you input 14 characteres (YYYYmmddMMDDSS)
Also, a bug: You must run install.sh from the directory that hbcxmlgen.sh is in. Otherwise:
mcpancakes@desktop:/$ /usbhdd/Programming/hbcxmlgen/install.sh -i Copying to /usr/bin/hbcxmlgen ... [sudo] password for mcpancakes: cp: cannot stat `hbcxmlgen.sh': No such file or directory Installed! mcpancakes@desktop:/$
It won't really be installed. They come together in the same archive anyway, and are extracted to the same place, so just take the time to
cd to the directed you unpacked it in and run
./install.sh from there.
