Installomator Updated: v0.4

I had been fairly busy with both the JNUC and MacSysAdmin presentations, but work on Installomator has continued.

I also did an overview of what Installomator does in my MacSysAdmin Online presentation: “Practical Scripting”.

Many of these new features have been provided from others, either through GitHub issues, pull requests, or through comments in the #installomator channel on MacAdmins Slack. Thanks to all who contributed.

What’s new in v0.4:

  • you can now set script variables as an argument in the form VARIABLE=value. More detail on this in the README file, ‘Configuration from Arguments.’
  • change downloadFromGit to match file types better
  • implemented a workaround for changed behavior of xpath in Big Sur
  • added an option prompt_user_the_kill to BLOCKING_PROCESS_ACTION which will kill the process after the third unsuccessful attempt to quit
  • added several new labels for total of 116

Get the script and find the instructions on the GitHub repo.

If you have any feedback or questions, please join us in the #installomatorchannel on MacAdmins Slack.

Thanks again to all those who contributed!
