Robust expansion (i.e. crash) of bash variables with a typo
By default bash expands an unbound variable to an empty string. This can be dangerous, if a critical variable name (a path prefix for example) has a typo. The -u option causes bash to treat this as an error, and the -e option causes it to exit in case of an error. These two together will make your scripts a lot safer against typos. The default behaviour can be explicitly requested using the ${NAME:-} syntax. A (less explicit) variation: #!/bin/bash -eu

delete all bitbucket repos via rest API v2 (req: jq and curl)
bitbucket paginates at around 1360 characters, so if you have several pages of repos in git hub you can just add "?page={1..4}" the url used to get all the repos. you can also use -v for the deletion curl if you want to see the response from the server.
