A futuristic terminal emulator inspired by TRON Legacy

the eDEX-UI project was originally meant to be DEX-UI with less « art » and more « distributable software »”. While keeping a futuristic look and feel, it strives to maintain a certain level of functionality and to be usable in real-life scenarios, with the larger goal of bringing science-fiction UXs to the mainstream.

It might or might not be a joke taken too seriously.

Confession: I’ve shared this before. Sorry not sorry. It’s too cool!

Unix Toolbox

This is a fantastic collection of Unix/Linux/BSD commands useful for IT work or for advanced users. System commands, processes, file system, SSH, SCP, rsync, encrypting files, SSL certificates, databases, disk quota…and more.

You can even print it for reference offline.

Stupid unix tricks

Jeffrey Paul shares a ⛴ load of goodies. I particularly like this idea:

I have a Makefile in my home directory… that I use to store common tasks related to my local machine… The one I use most often, though, is make clean, which takes everything in ~/Desktop and moves it into ~/Documents/$YYYYMM (creating the month directory in the process if it doesn’t exist), and also empties trashes.

tty-logger – readable, structured, beautiful logging in the terminal

A Ruby gem that significantly improves the situation with terminal logging as part of TTY Toolkit. It allows streaming of log data to any IO device (socket, file, etc…) with a highly customizable and pretty output to make key information stand out. You can limit the depth of the displayed data and specify the maximum size in bytes.

Microsoft unveils Windows Terminal

Microsoft is launching a new command line app for Windows, dubbed Windows Terminal. It’s designed to be the central location for access to environments like PowerShell, Cmd, and the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL). Microsoft is adding multiple tab support alongside theming and customization for developers who want to tweak the Terminal app.

It officially launches in June, but the source code is already up on GitHub so you build it yourself today.

The hard part in becoming a command line wizard

John D. Cook:

I’ve long been impressed by shell one-liners. They seem like magical incantations. Pipe a few terse commands together, et voilà! Out pops the solution to a problem that would seem to require pages of code. Are these one-liners real or mythology? To some extent, they’re both. Below I’ll give a famous real example. Then I’ll argue that even though such examples do occur, they may create unrealistic expectations.

I agree with his overall argument, but the good news about the command line is you don’t have to become a wizard to get value out of it. Start small and go from there.

Level up your dotfiles by reading these awesome dotfiles

On our recent text mode episode, we mentioned learning from other people’s dotfiles. Adam found this awesome-dotfiles repo and included it in the show notes, but I thought I’d log it as well to call more attention to it.

Also, did you like my idea near the end of the show to produce some videos of smart/interesting developers walking us through their dotfiles? Holla back in the comments…
