Bash is a "Unix shell": a command-line interface for interacting with the operating system. It is widely available, being the default shell on many GNU/Linux distributions and on Mac OS X; and ports exist for many other systems. It was created in the late 1980s by a programmer named Brian Fox, working for the Free Software Foundation. It was intended as a free-software alternative to the Bourne shell (in fact, its name is an acronym for "Bourne-again shell"), and it incorporates all features of that shell, as well as new features such as integer arithmetic and in-process regular expressions.

In addition to the interactive mode, where the user types one command at a time, with immediate execution and feedback, Bash (like many other shells) also has the ability to run an entire script of commands, known as a "Bash shell script" (or "Bash script" or "shell script" or just "script"). A script might contain just a very simple list of commands — or even just a single command — or it might contain functions, loops, conditional constructs, and all the other hallmarks of imperative programming. In effect, a Bash shell script is a computer program written in the Bash programming language.

Shell scripts can be called from the interactive command-line described above; or, they can be called from other parts of the system. One script might be set to run when the system boots up; another might be set to run every weekday at 2:30 AM; another might run whenever a user logs into the system.

Shell scripts are commonly used for many system administration tasks, such as performing disk backups, evaluating system logs, and so on. They are also commonly used as installation scripts for complex programs. They are particularly suited to all of these because they allow complexity without requiring it: if a script just needs to run two external programs, then it can be a two-line script, and if it needs all the power and decision-making ability of a Turing-complete imperative programming language, then it can have that as well.

NOT Bash for your iOS device

This app lets you run a Bash script, yeah, though not on your iOS device but on a remote computer.

So if you want to learn basic Bash to run on other computers okay, but if you want Bash to explore your iPhone or iPad, this is not it.

The developer really should make that clear, but AFAICT they do not.

I’d love to give real feedback

I use vscode to write bash scripts and had an idea for one so I searched the App Store and saw this , it looks like a passable editor with highlight which is cool , but I really can’t give any more feedback as the app doesn’t really let you try full functionality ? Maybe give people a few freebies ? Or maybe put ads and make the “unlimited compiles an option ? People are way less likely to buy something they can’t put through its paces or twice in.

I work in cars sales , butts on seats and feet on pedals , sell metal.

So far, good app, a couple suggestions

The app is all around good, though, I would like to be able to test the build/compile feature before I commit money to the app. I understand the dev needs money to support the app, but, it is difficult for me to put money into something that may not work for me. Second, the app needs cloud support, allow me to store my files in the cloud, and access them across devices. Don’t always have my tablet on me, and it would be useful to access my scripts from my phone.
