Recently I’ve started to use Visual Code as my editor on Mac OS X, and using it with my GitHub Repos. It’s pretty cool! However I noticed that when I submit a commit via code, I do not see the verified badge.
When I look at my global git config on my Mac OS X machine, I can see that I’ve configured the settings so that my user details are passed to GitHub as an author of the repository.
I was trying to download a software release from GitHub using Curl and hitting an issue, the file wasn’t large enough for a start, it was unusable and clearly not the file I expected.
curl -O https://github.com/kastenhq/external-tools/releases/download/3.0.12/k10tools_3.0.12_linux_amd64
% Total % Received % Xferd Average Speed Time Time Time Current
Dload Upload Total Spent Left Speed
100 635 100 635 0 0 2387 0 --:--:-- --:--:-- --:--:-- 2387
I tested this in a browser and found the link redirects elsewhere, hence the issue.
Just needed to specify a few extra arguments.
curl -LJO https://github.com/kastenhq/external-tools/releases/download/3.0.12/k10tools_3.0.12_linux_amd64
# Explanation of the arguments
-L, --location Follow redirects
-J, --remote-header-name Use the header-provided filename
-O, --remote-name Write output to a file named as the remote file
If you wish to use wget instead.
wget --content-disposition https://github.com/kastenhq/external-tools/releases/download/3.0.12/k10tools_3.0.12_linux_amd64
# Explanation of the argument
--content-disposition honor the Content-Disposition header when choosing local file names (EXPERIMENTAL)
