Symlink from flyctl to fly

Concourse CI calls its CLI fly, so it’s unfortunate to have two different tools with the same name. After doing flyctl version update, the symlink from flyctl to fly always gets re-added. I normally delete it, but it would be nice if the symlink was not created automatically, or at least to have a flag to disable it. Or it could be added on install but not update, or something.

Ah that is a bummer. I can think of two quick-and-easy options:

  1. You could shuffle your PATH setup around (in ~/.zshrc, ~/.bash_profile or whatever rc makes sense for your shell) so Councourse’s fly takes precedence
  2. Or after the variable is set you could re-alias to the Concourse location: alias fly=/absolute/path/to/councourse/fly
