- Except, you can write real
bashcode! Any and all syntax is accepted — no magic going on here. ;)
Makefile, you may utilize
4 × U+0020 a.k.a. “spaces”] for indentation.
- Environment variables are explicitly passed or whitelisted (
--allow), not inherited from the parent shell.
- Tasks can be run safely and reliably. Rest assured that scripts are executed from the project root directory.
- There are many other benefits to this design, that have yet to be expressed in this document.
Automate Workflows — Bootstrap Development Environments — Commit The Tasks
I love using
Makefile for one-off tasks in projects.
The problem with doing this is that you can't use familiar bash–isms when doing so, as GNU Make doesn't use the familiar Bash syntax, nor does it allow for simple ad–hoc use of arbitrary scripting languages (e.g. Python).
project seeks to bridge all of these worlds into a single entrypoint — ideal for cross–language repositories

*nix Distributions (Python 3.6+):
The primary installation method of
bake, today, is via
$ pip3 install bake-cli Collecting bake-cli … Successfully installed bake-cli-0.2.0 delegator.py-0.1.1 pexpect-4.7.0 ptyprocess-0.6.0
This will always work, but it will not be the default recommendation.
MacOS (Previously known as OS X)
bake will (soon) be very easy, with Homebrew. The formula needs a subtle adjustment — if you want to help, here's the repo!

Containers! e.g. Docker.
You an also run
bake via Docker! An official image has been made available on DockerHub:
$ docker run kennethreitz/bake Wed Sep 18 10:11:01 2019 No Bakefile found! Usage: [OPTIONS] [TASK] [ARGUMENTS]... $ bake — the strangely familiar task–runner. Options: -b, --bakefile PATH The Bakefile to use. -l, --list Lists available tasks (and their dependencies). -h, --help Show this message and exit. --allow TEXT Whitelist an environment variable for use. --no-deps Do not run dependent tasks. --yes Set medium–security prompts to yes. --continue Continue, if a task fails. -i, --interactive Run in interactive mode. --insecure Inherit parent shell's environment variables. -s, --silent Reduce output. -e, --environ-json TEXT Provide environment variables via JSON. -j, --json Output in JSON format (stdout).

Team & Workflow Management
You can use
bake to bootstrap your team's development environments, ensuring a smooth and optimal workflow & local development experience.
Here's an example, using the
Bakefile provided above:
$ bake install + Executing install/node: | yarn install v1.17.3 | info No lockfile found. | [1/4] Resolving packages... | [2/4] Fetching packages... | [3/4] Linking dependencies... | [4/4] Building fresh packages... | success Saved lockfile. | Done in 0.05s. + Executing install/python: | Installing dependencies from Pipfile.lock (f10bb0)… + Executing install: + Done.
Skip Steps, Automatically
Because we configured
Pipfile.lock as cache keys,
bake will automatically skip the configured steps— only running them
when the files are changed!
So, let's run that command again :)
$ bake install + Skipping install/node: + Skipping install/python. + Executing install: + Done.
Arguments & Parameters: Passing Values In
$ bake utils/argv KEY=VALUES 1 2 3 + Executing utils/argv: | VALUES: 1 2 3 + Done.
(Optional) Non-Deterministic Confirmation Dialouges
$ bake utils/deploy What is 10 times 2?: 7 Aborted.
