Re: How to make the script executable on Windows (to proceed the GitHub Actions Lab Course)?

I wrote a long reply before that was removed by one of the moderators... I won't write everything again. Just in short: I found a solution that worked! You can restore the post if anyone is interested...

 

Thanks for your help.

I also got this problem. It'd help me a lot if you can restore the solution or tell me how to do it.

Thanks :)

@brianamarieThanks for restoring my post. Is there a way to change the solution to my restored post? Or could you do it as moderator?

I'm struggling with the same issue.
However, am I the only one who doesn't actually think this is a solution?
Just use a Linux VM instead of Windows shouldn't be an acceptable answer.

@GertjanMonkeyProof I agree - I have notified the course author and they are working on a better solution.

If you follow the instructions as in the tutorial, but use the bash console at https://repl.it/languages/bash it works. You will be prompted for another couple of steps (eg author name/email, credentials for github), but that's fairly self explanatory.
