build shortcut using Mac OS terminal

Posted 31 March 2017 - 12:12 AM

I'm trying to build a shortcut to run a python code. This code was built my developer who is now missing in action. I'm not able to write code in Mac OS terminal. In any case, I have two pythons files in the folder proofs. When I hit jj on the terminal it runs the code 5.7.16. I thought if I changed the first line from




then the short cut would run the "prove" file but it doesn't. It continues to run the 5.7.16 file. So I'm trying to build a second short cut where if I hit kk then it runs the prove file located in the proofs folder. Any help would be appreciated. Don't worry about the stuff where it says excel, MySQL and django. That's not important.


vmysql=$(grep "mysql =" $FPTH | cut -d'=' -f2)

vexcel=$(grep “excel =" $FPTH | cut -d'=' -f2)

echo $vexcel

echo $vmysql

if [ "$vexcel" == "True" ] ; then

echo "Excel"

elif [ "$vmysql" = "True" ] 


echo "Mysql"


echo "Django"


if [ "$vexcel" = "True" ] ; then

echo "Excel is set”

python $FPTH

elif [ "$vmysql" = "True" ] 


echo "Mysql is set”

python $FPTH


echo “Django is set”

cd /dUsers/robertford/PycharmProjects/inference_engine2

python manage.py runserver

Look at your if conditionals on lines 11, 15, 27, & 33. The first one has double equals, & the 2nd two both have single. I'm not familiar with which syntax is correct, as I use the dash options, for example : -eq -ne .
