Alias requests for groovy snap


#1

I am wanting to create the following aliases for the additional commands provided as part of the groovy snap:

groovyc
groovysh
groovydoc
groovyConsole
groovy-docs
grape
java2groovy

Thanks, Paul.

+1 from me as reviewer: all the commands are “namespaced” themselves so it would be very awkward for users to need to say groovy.groovysh and somesuch.

The only generic looking name is grape but it doesn’t seem to have conflicts:

$ grape

Command 'grape' not found, did you mean:

  command 'grap' from deb grap
  command 'grace' from deb grace
  command 'graph' from deb plotutils

Try: sudo apt install <deb name>

All of these look fine to me as well. I’m unfamiliar with groovy and spoke with @paulk and learned that grape is groovy’s package management system.

+1 for all the aliases. 2 votes for, 0 against. This is now live.
