I’d like to launch GitHub Desktop on the command line on my Mac. The issue is I do not have admin rights on this laptop, so I installed Github Desktop to my user-space
~/Applications folder. But when I try and follow the instructions to install the command line interface, it fails because I’m guessing it’s trying to do something in
/usr/local or the like.
I did this:
❯ ln -s ~/Applications/GitHub\ Desktop.app/Contents/Resources/app/static/github.sh ~/bin/github
and it seemed to sort of work, but I’m just wondering if there is more I need to do? (Or if there is a way to tell GitHub Desktop “Use $HOME not /usr/local”?)
