type less, do more, wayyy faster with this full-featured terminal file manager

I logged this almost exactly 1 year ago, but nnn is worth another look: it is also a disk usage analyzer, a fuzzy app launcher, a batch renamer and a file picker. The plugin repository has tons of plugins and documentation to extend the capabilities further. You can plug new functionality and play with a custom keybind instantly.

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.

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…
