How to install youtube-dl on a chromebook

Apps and settings I install on a new Ubuntu WSL Install [Updated January 2018]

Much cleaner than my old script! See instructions below.

The Simple One Liner

cd ~/ && wget https://gist.githubusercontent.com/wormeyman/3be8fa7243ca9afa73cb/raw/a74e65625119fadb4b8bff6cede0c0b40a57c2bb/setupWormeymanEnviro.sh && chmod +x ./setupWormeymanEnviro.sh && ./setupWormeymanEnviro.sh

The Full Process:

  1. Click View Raw
  2. cd ~/
  3. wget the raw file url
    1. https://gist.githubusercontent.com/wormeyman/3be8fa7243ca9afa73cb/raw/a74e65625119fadb4b8bff6cede0c0b40a57c2bb/setupWormeymanEnviro.sh
  4. chmod +x setupWormeymanEnviro.sh
  5. ./setupWormeymanEnviro.sh
  6. Unlikely but:
    1. If you receive an error you may have to enable the universe repository.
      1. First, open software center.
      2. Click on 'edit
      3. Then 'software sources'
      4. Check the box that says, "Community-maintained free and open-source software (universe)."
      5. If it asks you to reload you can say yes if you want but you will just reload again with the script so i usually just say close.

Override WebPagetest.org dns settings

Super useful for testing a non-live site to see if the new server or settings is fast enough.

Script:

setDns	mytestedhost.com	123.234.123.234
navigate	mytestedhost.com

Notes:

  • Use Tab stops not spaces
    • I copied the above code into VSCODE and changed it to tab stops to get it to work.
  • Paste into https://www.webpagetest.org/#script

Gutenberg Editor Test

Testing out the new gutenberg editor on WordPress it seems to be working well! It's cool that you can re-arrange content blocks.
