barf on MacOS
barf project was built on Linux and was catered towards Linux users. The core of the project will remain focused on Linux/GNU tools, but that doesn't mean MacOS needs to be left out in the cold.
There are some very minor changes you'll need to make to your default
date paths if you plan to run barf on MacOS.
This walkthrough assumes that you already have homebrew installed on your machine.
You will need to install the GNU versions of both
sed in order to avoid breaking things when
barf tries to build.
brew install coreutils
brew install gnu-sed
gdate as Default
Now run the following in a terminal shell:
sudo ln -fs /opt/homebrew/bin/gsed /usr/local/bin/sed
sudo ln -fs /opt/homebrew/bin/gdate /usr/local/bin/date
and add the following to your
bash instance and everything should work as intended!
