Respond to Prompt in Bash Script
I work on a project that requires I frequently build and destroy a virtual machine. I don't enjoy having to do so but virtual machines can be notoriously difficult to prop up, especially when you have a complex app living within it.
Manually typing the same commands over and over can be mind-numbing so I've create a bash script to handle all of the work for me. One hiccup to the process is needing to confirm removal of an existing virtual machine; using a pipe and
echo allows me to answer the prompt:
# ... some directives here
# Remove the machine, confirming "y" when asked by docker-machine
echo 'y' | docker-machine rm default
# ... more directives here
echo I pipe a
y response to
docker-machine's confirmation prompt, thus allowing the script to move forward with other tasks without the need for manual intervention.
I don't, however, know how to handle multiple prompts -- can you tell me and everyone else?
