I am starting to realize that the Unix command-line toolbox can fix absolutely any problem related to text wrangling. Let me tell you about a problem I had, and how I used some Unix command-line utilities to solve it.
Marker is a command palette for the terminal. It lets you bookmark commands (or commands templates) and easily retreive them with the help of a real-time fuzzy matcher.
A curated list of Terminal frameworks, plugins & resources for CLI lovers.
nnn is probably the fastest and most resource-sensitive file manager you have ever used. It integrates seamlessly with your DE and favourite GUI utilities, has a unique navigate-as-you-type mode with auto-select, disk usage analyzer mode, bookmarks, contexts, application launcher, familiar navigation shortcuts, subshell spawning and much more.
eDEX-UI is a fullscreen desktop application resembling a sci-fi computer interface, heavily inspired from DEX-UI and the TRON Legacy movie effects. It runs the shell of your choice in a real terminal, and displays live information about your system. It was made to be used on large touchscreens but will work nicely on a regular desktop computer or perhaps a tablet PC or one of those funky 360° laptops with touchscreens.
These are answers to frequently asked questions on channel #bash
on the freenode IRC network. These answers are contributed by the regular members of the channel (originally heiner, and then others including greycat and r00t), and by users like you. If you find something inaccurate or simply misspelled, please feel free to correct it!
Browsh is a fully-modern text-based browser. It renders anything that a modern browser can
Poezio is a free #console
XMPP client (the protocol on which the Jabber IM network is built). Its goal is to let you connect very easily (no account creation needed) to the network and join various chatrooms, immediately. It tries to look like the most famous IRC clients (weechat, irssi, etc). Many commands are identical and you won't be lost if you already know these clients. Configuration can be made in a configuration file or directly from the client.
A little collection of cool unix terminal/console/curses tools
Just a list of 20 (now 28) tools for the command line. Some are little-known, some are just too useful to miss, some are pure obscure -- I hope you find something useful that you weren't aware of yet! Use your operating system's package manager to install most of them. (Thanks for the tips, everybody!)
On this blog I post articles on systems administration and programming, particularly where it relates to my interests in Unix, GNU/Linux, shell scripting, C, Perl, Vim, Git, or whatever else takes my interest from a technical bent. A favorite topic is using command-line tools effectively and efficiently.
