Maybe my mind just doesn't work the right way for it to come easy to me but anything beyond the basics in bash scripting just seems like obtuse nonsense. Python is a little more intuitive to me being able to understand what is going on.



@kelbot I start everything in #!/bin/sh, and then immediately move to Ruby or Python once "need an array" or "need to parse json" show up.

Then there's no focusing on how to do it but what to do with it
