# Install or update texmf-modules
# Requires: awk, rsync

# Check whether LuaMetaTeX is available
if ! command -v luametatex > /dev/null; then
    echo "luametatex is not in PATH, so there likely won't be the correct mtxrun"
    echo "Aborting..."
    exit 1

# Make the texmf-modules directory, just in case
TEXMFMODULES="$(mtxrun --resolve-path "\$TEXMFMODULES")"
mkdir -p "${TEXMFMODULES}/"

# Sync with the Garden
for module in $(rsync "${GARDENRSYNC}/*" | awk '{print $NF}'); do
    echo "Syncing ${module}"
    rsync -rpztlv --delete "${GARDENRSYNC}/${module}/" "${TEXMFMODULES}/"
