Despite all the recent hype, setting up a new TypeScript (x React) library can be tough. Between Rollup, Jest,
tsconfig, Yarn resolutions, TSLint, and getting VSCode to play nicely….there is just a whole lot of stuff to do (and things to screw up). TSDX is a zero-config CLI that helps you develop, test, and publish modern TypeScript packages with ease–so you can focus on your awesome new library and not waste another afternoon on the configuration.
WebAssembly is a powerful tool for bringing command line utilities to the web and giving people the chance to tinker with tools.
Yet another excellent use case for Wasm.
Could this be the future of writing interactive CLI tools? If you know React you know Ink.
Ink is a library for building and testing command-line applications using React components. Since it acts as a React renderer, you can use everything that React has to offer: hooks, class components, state, context, everything. Ink lets you build interactive and beautiful CLIs in no time.
Lightweight and without any external dependencies qoa enables you to receive various types of user input through a set of intuitive, interactive & verbose command-line prompts. The library utilizes a simple & minimal usage syntax and contains 7 configurable console interfaces, such as plain text, confirmation & password/secret prompts as well as single keypress, quiz & multiple-choice navigable menus.
You can search from commits, inspect indvidual files and changes in the commits, see ahead/behind commits etc. It is an alternative and interactive way to explore the commit history. Also, you can explore your current state by investigating diffs, stage your changes and commit them.
An alternative command-line client for SQLite. Provides intuitive auto-completion against table names and columns. It’s written in Python, so you can get it with a
pip install litecli
Any git repository contains a tonne of information about commits, contributors, and files. Extracting this information is not always trivial, mostly because of a gadzillion options to a gadzillion git commands – I don’t think there is a single person alive who knows them all. Probably not even Linus Torvalds himself :)
Truth. Clone the repo here and
make install or
brew install git-quick-stats if you’re on macOS.
We’ve been chronicling Daniel’s work on #curl for some time now. December 11, 2018 will be Daniel’s final official day at Mozilla. He assures us that his work on curl will continue, saying this in regards to his time dedicated to curl and where he works for his full-time income, “I don’t think my choice of future employer should have to affect that negatively too much, except of course in periods.”
Here are the main points from Daniel (but you should certainly dig into the details):
- It’s been five great years, but now it is time for me to move on and try something else.
- …lots of the HTTP/2 development and the publication of that was made while I was employed by Mozilla and I fondly participated in that.
- …we’re also losing Mozilla as a primary sponsor of the curl project, since that was made up of them allowing me to spend some of my work days on curl and that’s now over.
- I will continue to follow and work with HTTP and other internet protocols very closely.
- The future is bright but unknown! “I don’t yet know what to do next.”
qis a command line tool that allows direct execution of SQL-like queries on CSVs/TSVs (and any other tabular text files).
qtreats ordinary files as database tables, and supports all SQL constructs, such as WHERE, GROUP BY, JOINs etc. It supports automatic column name and column type detection, and provides full support for multiple encodings.
An example of using
q to count distinct values of a specific field (uuid of clicks data)
q -H -t "SELECT COUNT(DISTINCT(uuid)) FROM ./clicks.csv"
graph-cliis designed to be highly configurable for easy and detailed graph generation. It has many flags to acquire this detail and uses reasonable defaults to avoid bothering the user. It also leverages chaining, so you can create complex graphs from multiple CSV files.
up a.k.a. the Ultimate Plumber:
The main goal of the Ultimate Plumber is to help interactively and incrementally explore textual data in Linux, by making it easier to quickly build complex pipelines, thanks to a fast feedback loop. This is achieved by boosting any typical Linux text-processing utils such as
perl, etc., etc., by providing a quick, interactive, scrollable preview of their results.
dategrep reads a file and prints every line with a timestamp that falls into a user defined time range. When invoked on a normal file, dategrep uses a binary search to find the first matching line.
The usefulness of this is perhaps best understood by seeing a few examples:
dategrep --start "12:00" --end "12:15" syslog dategrep --end "12:15" --format "%b %d %H:%M:%S" syslog dategrep --last-minutes 5 syslog cat syslog | dategrep --end "12:15"
Looks cool, but mind the disclaimer:
The project is still under alpha, there are lots of things already done, but there is also a lot of work to do! If you want to help, please contact me under email@example.com or create an issue! Working in community, we can soon have a CLI client as complete as the web one!
lazygit is a simple terminal UI for git commands, written in Go with the gocui library.
They had me sold at “lazy” 😉
Klaus Sinani strikes again!
By utilizing a simple and minimal usage syntax, that requires a flat learning curve, taskbook enables you to effectively manage your tasks and notes across multiple boards from within your terminal.
This is like having your own personal Trello right there in the terminal!
A dependency-free port of the asciichart library. It includes a CLI for feeding it data directly.
This post is a simple, step-by-step explanation of how Patrick created ‘an insanely simple “did” file accessible by terminal’. What’s interesting about it to me is not how to do it, but the idea of doing it itself. His motiviation:
Time flies by when you’re learning how to code. Its super important to take a second every once in a while to simple write down what you did during the past mental sprint. Writing down what you learned solidifies the knowledge.
This is a great truth, and one that applies far beyond learning how to code. Sometimes we need a
did.txt just to recognize how much we’ve accomplished recently. For me, there are days when I get to the end and feel like I didn’t really accomplish much. If I’d catalogued my wins throughout the day as they occurred (no matter how small), I bet I’d feel different about that.
However, I’m both busy and lazy (a hellacious pairing) and wouldn’t keep up with this habit unless it were dead simple. Patrick’s ‘did.txt’ solution is about as simple as it gets…
Cheat.sh is a curl based cheat sheet, with cheat sheets for over 50 languages, 1,000 Unix/Linux commands, and the ability to search StackOverflow that promises to remain fast (responses in 100ms).
Lynx, eat your heart out.
Browsh renders anything that a modern browser can; HTML5, CSS3, JS, video and even WebGL.
Run it as a TTY client or a browser client with an emphasis on reducing bandwidth costs and increasing browsing speed. I have to admit, our podcasts page looks pretty tight all pixelated like that.
The overall purpose of Neofetch is to be used in screen-shots of your system. Neofetch shows the information other people want to see. There are other tools available for proper system statistic/diagnostics.
Supports almost 150 different operating systems, so odds are it has you covered. Check my results below. Pretty decent
uptime for a laptop, no?
As we know, an “Ask HN: Who is Hiring?”(example) post will occur at hackernews every month. It is interesting to scan the post because it helps you to get a feeling about what is happening in tec related busness. Aim of this repo is to give you a feeling about how the tec job requirements/used tools/kind/… evolves.
React and Blockchain jobs on the rise…
Upload a file using
curl --upload-file ./hello.txt https://transfer.sh/hello.txt
And the response will be a shareable URL, e.g.
Works with files up to 10GB, deletes them after 14 days, costs nothing, and encrypts everything. Super cool! 😎
Ety uses research data that was scraped from Wiktionary so you can discover and visualise the history of words.
pip install ety and you have easy access to word histories from your command line.
