That Non-Windows Scaffolding for OS-X and Linux |> I Broke It! But…

I dove into the ProjectScaffold solution recently to see where I could get with this project. Just like in the instructions I first cloned the project.

git clone

Then executed the shell script to get an appropriate download of Paket and related tools.

$ ./

On OS-X my first attempt I got scaffolding but a bad build right off. See the video below for that example.

Trying the same thing on Ubuntu gave me this issue. This issue seemed to be different from the OS-X issue so I’m working to resolve it separately.

adron@ubuntu ~/C/ProjectScaffold> ./
No version specified. Downloading latest stable.
Github download failed. Try downloading Paket directly from ''.
Error getting response stream (Write: The authentication or decryption has failed.): SendFailure

Then trying it on OS-X gave me this issue.  :-/

Grumble grumble, fuss, fuss, alright, going into debugging and troubleshooting mode. I made a video of the exact steps I went through.

So if you have any ideas, let me know, I’m currently looking through the code and trying out some things. Once I get this working I’ll update this blog entry below the video with the updated resolution. Thanks!

UPDATED: Dammit, the dumbest things are what always punch me in the face the hardest. I fixed it, and it didn’t require a pull request after all! When naming a project be sure to use only string characters to be safe. As I wrote in the github issue, the name “sharp-kata-01” breaks the build in a way that gives completely erroneous messages. Once I renamed it things moved forward.
