Why you should learn Bash scripting right now!

Bash scripting is a really valueable skill, and necessary if you plan on, or are working in IT.

Why is it so usefull?

From starting a Polybar on Arch Linux with a Bash script, to getting information from thousands of servers at the press of a command, Bash scripting can do it all (well quite a lot).

To be more clear thought, server managing for example is a lot better with Bash scripting. I'll show some examples!

#!/bin/bash

echo Hello world!

This is a simple script which prints Hello world! in your terminal. Let's break it down!

#!/bin/bash

is a shebang. This indicates that the script is in fact a Bash script.

echo Hello world!

Runs the command echo with the parameters Hello world!. Echo prints out a text.

Congratulations! You've made your first Bash script! I recommendend trying to make something such as a simple fetch by your own using help from the internet, to learn the depths of Bash scripting.
