Feature Request: Notify User If There's No ENV_PATH Set for Shell Scripts

What: Notify user that:

  1. Shell is independent from Terminal/zsh/etc
  2. A link to ENV_PATH wiki

Extra bonus points:
3. A way to import current path into ENV_PATH.


Noted, although I'm not sure I'll do it. The only way to clear the warning would be by actively making an ENV_PATH even if you had no need for one.

Maybe a dismissible notice?
dang, good observation.

If I was going to do this I think I'd:

  • Pop-up a warning on the first insertion of an Execute a Shell Script action.
  • Link it to the Wiki, and recommend the user read the essential data points at the very least (modify the wiki if needed).
  • Set a flag in Keyboard Maestro's defaults that indicates the user saw it.

But this gets complicated, so I wouldn't blame Peter at all for not wanting to go there.

There's only so much you can do to save users who don't read documentation from themselves.
