As you may know, I am a HUGE fan of the Raspberry Pi and have been playing, making a lot of videos recently around it. One thing I found out and love is Minecraft for the Raspberry Pi.

I made a script that will Download, Extract, and Run the Minecraft executable on its own. It even uses WGET for resuming a failed download as some people report losing connections to his/her Pi and just makes sense to add it. The script is obviously 100% open source and can be downloaded now at: https://github.com/lanceseidman/MinePi-Installer.

How do you run MinePi?
Simply type: ./mine-pi in a BASH Terminal.

Press 1 for a Fresh Download OR Press 2 for Resuming your Download

Why else did I make the script? The Raspberry Pi is all about learning and specifically programming. I thought it could help those who would like how to do BASH Scripting and I have commented the heck out of the code so that you know pretty much EVERYTHING that occurs, why, and you can build on to it yourself if desired. Play with it, make it better!
