TIL: How to re-run bashrc script
bashrc contains small function that asks for my SSH password and keeps it while I’m logged so I don’t have to re-type it every time I make a GitHub command. Sometimes my terminal fails while or before I get to enter my password.
Now, when that happens I can run
. ~/.bashrc; start_agent. Calling just
. ~/.bashrc would run the whole file but there is a conditional in there that I don’t understand fully but it prevents
start_agent function from running so I’m calling it explicitly.
