[Ubuntu] Simple shell script to install (or update to) latest version of VSCodium
#!/bin/bash
# This script will check if VSCodium is installed in your machine, if yes, then tries to update it to the latest version
# else, installs whichever the latest version is.
#
# NOTE: There's already this repo (https://gitlab.com/paulcarroty/vscodium-deb-rpm-repo) that provides
# the codium package for APT based distros but for some reason the download was extremely slow.
# This script pulls the download from github directly (which is hopefully a tad bit faster).
# Thanks to https://stackoverflow.com/a/4024263/2631023
function verlte() {
[ "$1" = "`echo -e "$1\n$2" | sort -V | head -n1`" ]
}
