    $.getenv() on Mac

    Jump_Over Level 5

      Hi,

       

      Looking for a help from Mac users...

      Is

      $.getenv("os")
      

      returning any string on Mac or null?

      Does it depends on MacOs version?

          Hi Jarek,

           

          $.getenv('os') // return null
          $.os // return Macintosh OS 10.12.2
          Folder.fs  // return Macintosh

            Hi Jarek.

             

            Windows and Mac have different environmental variables, that explains the result.

            Take the user name for example.

            var userName = $.getenv($.os[0] == "M" ? "USER" : "username");

            On Mac "USER" on Windows "username"

            For a list of mac envs in terminal type: printenv

            For windows from cmd (command promt) type: SET

             

            The windows one is quite easy to remember

             

            So in short there's no env on the mac called 'os'

             

            HTH
