Bash, or ‘The Bourne-Again Shell’ has a special reputation within the open-source community, as it was developed by the Free Software Foundation (FSF) under the GNU Project. Bash is the default user shell on most Linux installations and is just one of several well-known UNIX shells.

Here at Britefish we have become experts in this programming language because of its wide distribution with Linux and powered capabilities.


Why Use Bash?

We work with Bash because the main purpose of a UNIX shell is to allow users to interact effectively with the system through the command line, and this language and its features allow this interaction to occur seamlessly. While Bash is primarily a command interpreter, it’s also a programming language. It supports functions, variables, and has control flow constructs, such as conditional statements and loops.

Bash and all UNIX shells are primarily command interpreters that allow users to interact with the operating system. Shell programs are generally used when it’s desired to use other existing programs to do the heavy lifting. They are then chained together in a way that achieves the desired result. Bash is essentially the glue logic that makes small general-purpose tools work together and function seamlessly through the capabilities of a programming language.

Bash scripting is an extremely useful and powerful part of system administration and development, especially when it comes to supplementing other robust programming or scripting language. One of the great advantages of working with this language is that it has a better startup time because most work with it in short form, creating one-off scripts to support other programs. Another use for Bash scripting is to create what is known as a “one-liner,” or a string of commands all strung together with Bash scripting constructs, which aims to accomplish a particular goal. All of this makes for quick uptime through a useful and efficient programming language.
