You’ll likely appreciate this if you’re as nutty as I am about having the latest build of Chrome for Mac OS X (that is, the REAL build, not the terrible Chrome-under-Wine-under-X-under-OS X hack). I’ve written a small shell script to fetch the latest build of Chrome straight from the build.chromium.org site.
Modify the paths or file naming as you see fit; as it is written below, it will fetch the latest build and save it to your Downloads folder as Chrome.12345.zip, where 12345 is the latest build number.
#!/bin/sh export CHROME_BUILD=`curl -s http://build.chromium.org/buildbot/snapshots/chromium-rel-mac/LATEST` export CHROME_SOURCE="http://build.chromium.org/buildbot/snapshots/chromium-rel-mac/$CHROME_BUILD/chrome-mac.zip" export CHROME_TARGET=$HOME/Downloads/Chrome.$CHROME_BUILD.zip curl $CHROME_SOURCE > $CHROME_TARGET echo Saved build $CHROME_BUILD to $CHROME_TARGET.
You should get similar output as I do:
brian@moonbus:~$ getchrome % Total % Received % Xferd Average Speed Time Time Time Current Dload Upload Total Spent Left Speed 100 11.5M 100 11.5M 0 0 681k 0 0:00:17 0:00:17 --:--:-- 715k Saved build 17158 to /Users/brian/Downloads/Chrome.17158.zip.
For a one-time thing, you could just browse the build list and download it manually. You’ll want the zip file in the most recent folder.
I’ve updated this script to unzip the contents of the downloaded file, move the application object to the Applications folder, and remove both the downloaded zip file and the temporary unzipped directory.
#!/bin/sh export CHROME_BUILD=`curl -s http://build.chromium.org/buildbot/snapshots/chromium-rel-mac/LATEST` export CHROME_SOURCE="http://build.chromium.org/buildbot/snapshots/chromium-rel-mac/$CHROME_BUILD/chrome-mac.zip" export CHROME_ZIPFILE=~/Downloads/Chrome.$CHROME_BUILD.zip export CHROME_TMPDIR=/tmp/ChromeApp.$CHROME_BUILD ## Download the file. curl $CHROME_SOURCE > $CHROME_ZIPFILE ## Unzip to a temporary directory. unzip -q $CHROME_ZIPFILE -d $CHROME_TMPDIR ## Move to the Applications folder, removing the old one if necessary. rm -rf /Applications/Chromium.app mv $CHROME_TMPDIR/chrome-mac/Chromium.app /Applications echo Moved build $CHROME_BUILD to Applications folder. ## Clean up. rm -rf $CHROME_TMPDIR rm $CHROME_ZIPFILE
