Everybody that develops SAP Commerce projects knows how annoying it is to change the directory to .../hybris/bin/platform, source the ant configuration if necessary and then run the commands like ant or hybrisserver.sh, especially if you work on multiple projects.
This little helper script (available for Linux, macOS and Windows) automates that.
So instead of:
ant clean all
you can just run
ybp ant clean all
With some shell aliases / additional helper scripts (on Windows) you can reduce that even further, for example:
We all have been there:
You run a quick script to delete some faulty data on your test system.
Script succeeds, changes commited, another days work completed!
And then you realize that you had the wrong tab open - It wasn't the test system.
It was actually production.
The envribbon extension places a little ribbon/banner with the meta data of the current environment in the top left corner of the Administration Console and Backoffice.
Bonus: In CCv2, the meta data is provided automatically. Just add the extension to your project and you are ready to go. (Displayed information: <project>-<environment> (<aspect>))
