GitHub tarball extract & cd
View gist:575380
GitHub tarball downloads contain a folder inside named: <user>-<project>-<hash>
$ tag='v1.3.12'
$ curl -sL http://github.com/antirez/redis/tarball/$tag -o redis-$tag.tar.gz
$ dir=$(tar zxvf redis-$tag.tar.gz | tail -1 | cut -d "/" -f1)
$ cd $dir
$ make
Is there a cleaner way to cd to the directory inside the tarball?
