Nightly Chromium

Interested in running the nightly builds of Chromium 4 for OS-X?

Me too.

So I threw together a script to grab the latest nightly builds.

This is not the same as the Google Chrome Developer Release.

This is the open source code that will make it’s way into Google Chrome 4, some day. It’s very beta, you have been warned.

#!/bin/bash

set -eu

curl="/usr/bin/curl"
unzip="/usr/bin/unzip"
rsync="/usr/bin/rsync"
rm="/bin/rm"
mkdir="/bin/mkdir"

app=`basename $0`
tdir="${TMPDIR}/tmp.${app}.$$"

"${mkdir}" -p "${tdir}"
cd "${tdir}"

baseurl=http://build.chromium.org/buildbot/snapshots/chromium-rel-mac
echo "Fetching latest version..."
latest=`"${curl}" -q -s ${baseurl}/LATEST`

#echo "Fetching changelog..."
#"${curl}" -q "${baseurl}/${latest}/changelog.xml"

echo "Downloading to ${tdir}..."
"${curl}" -q -Ochrome-mac.zip "${baseurl}/${latest}/chrome-mac.zip"

echo "Extracting..."
"${unzip}" -q chrome-mac.zip

echo "Installing..."
"${rsync}" -a --delete-after "${tdir}"/chrome-mac/Chromium.app/ /Applications/Chromium.app/
echo "${latest}" > /Applications/Chromium.app/Contents/version

echo "Cleaning up..."
"${rm}" -rf "${tdir}"
