Move bears.json Into Place

August 2023

This doesn't work well. It doesn't picks up all the changes and sometimes takes several seconds to make the move. So, I'm not using it.

Looking at setting up a script with watchexec

This launchd script watches my Downloads folder. When a file named "ascii-shop.json" shows up it gets copied to my "asciibear" projected and with the name "bears.json"
