getting started with babushka

To install for the first time, or update an existing system, just run

bash -c "`curl`"

That’s for a box with curl, like a Mac. Most Linux boxes have wget instead, so for those, run

bash -c "`wget -O -`"

The script at downloads a temporary copy of babushka in a tarball, which is used to run babushka babushka, which in turn installs babushka for real. So if you already have babushka installed, you can just run

`babushka babushka`

The only difference is that the bootstrap command runs from a fresh copy of babushka that it downloads, and babushka babushka runs from the version that’s currently on your system.
