Is it possible that Data Loader command line can work in os x? After all it is "just java." I'm sure some of the JDBC stuff might not work but is it possible that simple CSV extracts could work? I'm hoping that with the right shell scripts it can be done but if people know otherwise I won't waste my time. Thanks.
I used it a while back ... not sure if it still works. Here are some tools to use the Mac DataLoader from the command line. https://github.com/sthiyaga/dataloader
Command Line for Dataloader is not supported by Mac, only Windows.
Yes, it does work. I created tool a while back to help with it: https://github.com/theswamis/dataloadercliq
Let me know if you run into any trouble.
