#Bibliogram updater

A collection of scripts to easily install and update Bibliogram.

#Quick start

git clone https://git.sr.ht/~cadence/bibliogram-updater

Run ./run.fish to run Bibliogram, and to install it and its requirements if they don't already exist. Updates will be installed automatically.

Run ./clean.fish to clean up the installation.

#After installing

You may want to do some of these things:

#It didn't work!

Please open an issue so I can fix it! Please tell me as much information as possible, most importantly the command you ran and the output on the console.

If you don't like GitHub, you can talk to me privately, or join the discussion room on Matrix: #bibliogram:matrix.org

#What's a fish?

The scripts are written in fish. You'll need to install fish: https://fishshell.com/

You do not have to set fish as your default shell. The scripts have #! lines, which makes them run in fish no matter what shell you are using.

If you want to port this to bash, please go ahead! I would have written it in bash originally for convenience, but I don't know bash.

#What do the scripts do?
