“Should I pipe it?”

So, fellow developers, you know how we’re all told not to pipe installation scripts into our shells and yet we all do it anyway? I just rolled a little something that might help with that…

Here’s an example of the nvm install script, verified by yours truly:

should-i-pipe.it/https://raw.g

What do you think?

Anyone with a GitHub account can help verify installation scripts (would be good to have two more for nvm).

Instructions: github.com/small-tech/should-i

Thoughts? :)

@aral gives me a HTTPS error on firefox if I type two "https://"

@oreolek It’s odd, I’ve run into it randomly a couple of times. Looks like a bug in Firefox. If you press return a couple of times/refresh it finally works.
