The smallest improvement makes this nifty little menubar app a five-star product! Want to know how long your Mac's been running? Create an item (or put it in a submenu - I call mine 'uptime') and have it issue the command 'uptime'). The resulting window shows how long my Mac's been running between restarts. No muss, no fuss. It's an app launcher, a script runner, and if you can do it at a command line (or write a script you want invoked), this is for you! Tucked neatly away in your menubar, this is a real productivity enhancer. Yes, five stars!

Version 1.7.7 is supposedly available through the app's update function. But the install fails every time. Attempting to download it from Github just gets a development package. I'll be looking for this to come to MacUpdate, because I really like this product!

I just tried to launch again after reviewing the package contents, and the crash error points to a code signing issue once again. I could be wrong.

I upgraded to Mojave this afternoon and the current Bashbar crashes on launch. I too have no idea how to contact the the dev to submit a crash report. His web presence is at GitHub and I have no idea how to contact him there. Also have no idea how to submit a crash report. Sure hope there's an update soon as this is one great utility.

I don't know how to contact Tom directly, so I'm just posting this note here. I upgraded to Mojave this morning and now BashBar 1.7.4 crashes on startup.

As someone who isn't too sophisticated, how does this program "run"? I was able to finally download a .zip file, but it unzips into a folder. How does one "run" a folder? Also, note that one has to give a star rating, or the alleged review can't be posted. So I'm giving this a 2.5 star rating, but it's only because I can't leave any rating at all, which is what I'd do, if I could.

The latest version now posted on Github is 1.7.2. And it works now on my MacBook Air when previous versions didn't (I'll check it out on my MacBook Pro shortly)! My main use for it is to quickly launch applications that typically include a menu item. My menu bar can get quite cluttered, despite using a utility to manage them. Plus, I have a utility that sometimes crashes, and BashBar gives me a quick way to re-launch it. Finally, I have a number of shell scripts I run, and BashBar lets me run them without having to open a Terminal window. This is a very nifty utility, and the developer, Tom Brek is very quick responding to issues. Five stars!

The strangest thing happened when I installed the 1.7 update: BashBar started crashing on launch. So I decided to revert back to 1.3 -- and the crash on launch persisted! I deep-cleaned and re-installed, and I'm still getting a crash on launch. The crash report shows "EXC_CRASH (Code Signature Invalid)." Has a recent macOS update killed this? I'm running 10.13.5.

I used to have a Dashboard widget that would allow one to input Terminal/bash commands, but it stopped working. This would seem to be an able replacement, perhaps. It needs some documenting, as I can only get it to work by defining my command(s) in the menu system; there does not appear to be a way to directly input bash commands. And then, if you want to see the output, you must pipe it to a file (OK, not such a big deal -- I just send it to my Desktop as a text file). I use the Terminal a lot (iTerm2, in fact) so I'm going to see if this is really a time-saver or not. I give the developer kudos for bringing this capability to the menu bar, and will be watching to see how it grows.

was glad to see something like that appearing but... just tested and doesn't seem to execute any script, strangely the output prompt shows success message, maybe some more work is needed as it is now is pretty useless.
