January 02, 2020

Here are some useful command-line tools that I use frequently to increase my productivity.

  • tldr is a more concise version of a man page.
  • bat is a cat command with highlighting, paging, line numbers, and git integration.
  • htop is a top command that acts as an activity monitor in your Terminal but with highlighting, keyboard bindings and different views.
  • t is a twitter client in your Terminal.
  • z is a cd command that jumps to a directory by tracking your most used directories.
