♆ Rush: A Minimalistic Bash Utility


Run all your task automation Bash commands from a single rushfile.yml file.


  • Supports all bash commands
  • Option to ignore or run specific tasks
  • By default, runs commands in interactive mode
  • Option to catch or ignore command errors
  • Option to show or supress command outputs
  • Command chaining is supported (See the example rushfile.yml where task_2 is chained to task_1)


$ pip3 install rush-cli



Here is an example rushfile.yml. It needs to reside in the root directory:

# rushfile.yml

task_1: |
    echo "task1 is running"

task_2: |
    # Task chaining [task_1 is a dependency of task_2]
    echo "task2 is running"

task_3: |
    ls -a
    sudo apt-get install cowsay | head -n 0
    cowsay "Around the world in 80 days!"

//task_4: |
    # Ignoring a task [task_4 will be ignored while execution]
    ls | grep "ce"
    ls > he.txt1

task_5: |
    # Running a bash script from rush

Available Options

To see all the available options, run:

$ rush


$ rush --help

This should show:

  ♆ Rush: A Minimalistic Bash Utility

  -a, --all          Run all tasks
  --hide-outputs     Option to hide interactive output
  --ignore-errors    Option to ignore errors
  -p, --path         Show the absolute path of rushfile.yml
  --no-deps          Do not run dependent tasks
  --view-tasks       View task commands
  -ls, --list-tasks  List task commands with dependencies
  --no-warns         Do not show warnings
  -v, --version      Show rush version
  -h, --help         Show this message and exit.

Running Tasks

  • Run all the tasks

    $ rush --all
  • Run specific tasks

    $ rush task_1 task_4
  • Ignore specific tasks

    See the example rushfile.yml where the '//' before a task name means that the task will be ignored during execution

    # rushfile.yml
    //task_4: |
        echo "This task will be ignored during execution."

    This ignores the task named //task_4.

  • Run tasks non interactively (supress the outputs)

    $ rush --hide-outputs
  • Run tasks ignoring errors

    $ rush --ignore-errors
  • Do not run the dependent tasks

    $ rush task_2 --no-deps

Viewing Tasks

  • View absolute path of rushfile.yml

    $ rush --path


  • View task commands

    $ rush task_5 task_6 task_7 --view-tasks


  • View task list with dependencies

    $ rush -ls


  • Rush runs all the commands using /usr/bin/bash. So shell specific syntax with other shebangs might throw error.

  • If you are running Bash script from rush, use shebang (#!/usr/bin/env bash)


  • Rush works better with python 3.7 and up
  • If your have installed Rush globally and it throws a runtime error, you can try to solve it via adding the following variables to your ~./bashrc:
export LC_ALL=C.UTF-8
export LANG=C.UTF-8
