    Heh. The joke is not in the prompt so much as in its contrast with its repository, which lovingly gilds the lily of excessive simplicity with a thick layer of best practices. I particularly enjoyed the patches directory. A kindred spirit to FizzBuzz Enterprise Edition.

      I’m the author of this monstrosity. Thought it was odd that the repository saw traffic today. ;)

        Why not making the project even safer with sudo? ;-)

          I really liked the fact that you have not omitted Nix <3

          Funny, I just posted this in #kisslinux earlier today asking Dylan why he made a whole repo for this. It never crossed my mind that it could be satire until he made fun of me for not recognizing the satire. It really is a funny idea though: a single line with an entire repo and build system.

            Is there a rust version?

              it smelled 🐟y when I read “suckless” AND “npm” in the readme

                Machine Learning is probably the only “best practice” this project doesn’t follow.

                  Did you forget the rest of the PS’s?

                  $ typeset -p|grep PS
                  typeset PS1='$ '
                  typeset PS2='> '
                  typeset PS3='#? '
                  typeset PS4='+ '
