I am new to the Apple "eco system" and I am trying to setup my environment variables for local development.
Here is what I have in my
~/.bash_profile (simplified for brevity):
export PATH="$JAVA_HOME/bin:$MAVEN_HOME/bin:$DEV_CLI:$PATH" export DEV_CLI="/path/to/cli/$BRANCH_NAME/bin" export BRANCH_NAME=dev
What I want here is to have my dev cli accessible from any point in the terminal. The crucial thing here is I want to change the
BRANCH_NAME on different occasions.
Currently my solution works only if I do
source ~/.bash_profile in every terminal tab/window I use.
So let's say that I open new terminal and do:
echo $DEV_CLI- it will be printed,
echo $PATH- the path for the cli will be missing there
echo $PATH- all variables set in the path will be shown (cli path including)
I am running on Mac High Seirra.
Any help explanation will be deeply appreciated!
