When I'm busy working on a Front-End project I mainly use chromium as my development browser to test the latest bleeding-edge features which have just been pushed to the dev tools.
The latest chromium builds are easily downloadable from download-chromium.
Simply download the zip archive, unzip it and you're done!
I needed a short script for my mac at work that:
- downloads the latest chromium build
- unzips the latest chromium build
- moves in to the
My first attempt looked like this:
cp -fr chrome-mac /Applications
rm -fr chrome-mac chrome-mac.zip
I then realized after looking on stackoverflow for a one-liner solution that the unzip command can't unzip through a unix pipe (as explained in ruario's answer).
In his answer, ruario suggests using an implementation of tar (
bsdtar) which is bundled with libarchive on some variants of BSD.
This version of
bsdtar can create and extract zip archives!
bsdtar can even read a zip file through a pipe when extracting a zip file.
I was able to turn my quick & dirty bash script into a neat one-liner :)
Simply add a new alias to your
alias dl-chromium='curl -#L https://download-chromium.appspot.com/dl/Mac | bsdtar -xf- -C /Applications'
Use with caution, chromium builds can sometimes be unstable!
