Bash aliases for testing and applying patches based on the URL on your clipboard. If you're on OS X, grab the first three lines and add to your ~/.bash_profile. If you're on Linux, grab lines 5-8 and add to your ~/.bash_profile or ~/.bashrc or whatnot :)Testbot uses git to apply patches, I only include the `patch` version here because sometimes …
# These ones are for OS X.
alias cav='curl `pbpaste` | git apply -v --check'
alias capv='curl `pbpaste` | patch -p1 --dry-run'
# These are untested but should work on many flavours of Linux. If they don't,
# please leave a comment!
alias cav='curl `xsel --clipboard --output` | git apply -v --check'
alias capv='curl `xsel --clipboard --output` | patch -p1 --dry-run'
# Patch shortcuts (some duplication of the above, but covers more use cases).
