Ovito from command line on macOS
Ovito is a visualization tool for atomistic configurations and simulation results.
When I open a file from command line, I had to directly call
/Applications/Ovito.app/Contents/MacOS/. Since it is cumbersome to type this everytime I open Ovito, firstly I made its link to the directory where my
PATH environment can find. But unfortunately and I don’t know the reason why, it did not work for Ovito.
So I created a script
#!/bin/bash ovito=/Applications/Ovito.app/Contents/MacOS/ovito if [ $# -eq 0 ]; then echo "You need at least one argument..." exit 0 fi $ovito $@
Now I can call
ovito from command line as,
$ ovito some-file-to-open
