I am reproducing an NLP paper and I need to get evennia working on Windows 10, with Python 2.7. I cloned this repo and followed the instructions but cant start servers with start.sh 1, as it runs a shell script and Git Bash does recognize the evennia command, which is needed for the script, for some reason. In other words:

  • The windows command prompt recognizes the evennia command just fine
  • However Git Bash does not: I get this error: bash: evennia: command not found

In conclusion, how can I get bash to recognize the 'evennia' command, like the windows command prompt does?

  • Could it be because evennia is a .bat file or can bash still run those? Or is it something wrong with the bash's path?

  • Did you do pip install -e . and got no errors? Because looking at the start.sh script, you'll get that error on Linux as well if the install wasn't done Nov 20, 2022 at 5:29

You don't need to use Git Bash to use the commands.

On Git Bash type :git checkout master. This will switch you to the master branch. Type the home world in Command Prompt then.

Similarly, use git checkout fantasy, and then type the tutorial_world.build command on your Command Prompt.
