[back to package description]


A fork of teleport with a focus on clean, functional code.


Unfortunately, since we can't change the directory of the user (possibly an upstream bug), we have to wrap teleport-hask in a bash script, so put bash/teleport on your PATH somewhere.

I also put the following in my ~/.bashrc so that teleport would run in the correct shell:

alias go="source $HOME/.local/bin/teleport"
