If I want to run a command, say
ranger, in a new termite terminal, I can use
termite -e "ranger"
and, if I want to run
ranger inside a bash sub-instance, I can use
bash --init-file <(echo ranger)
so what is it that I am doing wrong when I run
termite -e "bash --init-file <(echo ranger)"
My hope is to be able to open a terminal running ranger so that quitting ranger takes me back to bash.
