Fossil: 'getwoof' script

August 01, 2012 — BarryK
I need to automate the download of Woof from the online repository, so I wrote a script, /usr/sbin/getwoof. It also takes an optional parameter "update" to update an existing downloaded Woof.

Previously, there were manual steps involved, as explained here:

I had a great deal of difficulty writing this script, as I could not get some of the fossil CLI commands to work as the docs seemed to indicate how they should work. I ended up writing what I think is a clumsy script, but it does work.
