Trust

Things like this make me nervous.

A quick install via a bash script pulled from a URL:

curl https://mr-trusty.org/install-fun-thing.sh | sudo bash

New to me:┬áthis quick trick to install something into your /usr/local/bin with docker’s help.

docker run -v /usr/local/bin:/target my-trusty/fun-thing

And then we have this handy way to install via emacs…

(url-retrieve
 "https://raw.github.com/mr-trusy/fun-thing/master/fun-thing-install.el"
 (lambda (s)
   (end-of-buffer)
   (eval-print-last-sexp)))

It’s all about short term benefits and hardly about the risks.
