The git bash environment setup shown in the videos has been disabled in the repository

Jump to solution

Hi,

The bash environment setup shown in the video has been disabled by Ricardo in his gitlab project because of some bugs.

That means that the environment will not work as described.

I'm not aware what the bugs are or when they will be resolved but this shows a risk in using an external repository in courses.

Perhaps the suggested changes should be incorporated in the default build of the course lab environments as they make using the lab more convenient.
Perhaps with a way to enable/disable them if the learner chooses.

Regards

Bram

Ricardo was showing customization pieces and these aren't part of the official course materials. As instructors, we have the ability to show real-world ways to interact with the classroom environment and put concepts to use. The repository he is/was using was developed by him and not officially part of Red Hat Training. I also have many repositories I use to provide additional clarity to concepts and sometimes "easier to use" methods. 

We can't always guarantee access to outside repos or additional tools being maintained. The DO374 does teach how to use a default BASH git prompt and it shows where it is installed on the system. Like Ricardo, I have my own tools and demos I use for DO374 to help assist students grasp harder concepts or something that they take with them after class.

Can you please elaborate? I did not use his gitlab project so I am not really clear on what bugs you are referring to. Thanks.
