Hyper 3 is finally out! The primary focus for this release is performance. The latest version includes several enhancements that make Hyper really fast. For those of us who spend a significant amount of time on the command line, this release is a total game changer.

I’ve wanted something like this for so long that I forgot I wanted it. Insta-install!
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.
While googler is extremely popular among cmdline users, in many forums the need of a similar utility for privacy-aware DuckDuckGo came up. DuckDuckGo Bangs are super-cool too! So here’s
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…
We’re talking all things text mode with Lucas da Costa — we logged his post “How I’m still not using GUIs in 2019” a guide focused on making the terminal your IDE. We talked through his Terminal starter pack which includes: neovim, tmux, iterm2, and zsh by way of oh-my-zsh, his rules for learning vim, the awesomeness of CLI’s, and the pros and cons of graphical and plain text editors.
Start off your Monday by working on your Tetris skills right inside your terminal.
“GUIs are bloatware” — Terminal rules…a guide to the terminal…
In this post, I’ll walk you through everything you need to start making your terminal a complete development environment: how to edit text efficiently, configure its appearance, run and combine a myriad of programs, and dynamically create, resize and close tabs and windows.
This has a lot going for it:
- works with PowerShell, CMD, WSL or custom shells
- has tabs and multiple windows
- can be themed and configured to the hilt
- supports importing iTerm themes
- includes a fullscreen mode
- and more…

This post from Daniel Weibel not only explains how macOS uses an outdated version of Bash, but also how to upgrade to the latest Bash via Homebrew.
One thing that many macOS users don’t know is that they are using a completely outdated version of the Bash shell. However, it is highly recommended to use a newer version of Bash on macOS, because it enables you to use useful new features.
$ bash --version GNU bash, version 3.2.57(1)-release (x86_64-apple-darwin18) Copyright (C) 2007 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
The reason Apple uses this old version of Bash has to do with licensing. Bash 4.0 and newer uses the GNU General Public License v3 (GPLv3), which Apple doesn’t support. There are some discussions about this on Reddit.
Version 3.2 of GNU Bash is the last version with a license that Apple is willing to accept, and so it sticks with it.

I put Terminus’ tagline in scare quotes because while it’s intriguing, I do not know for sure whether it delivers on that promise. In more of its own words, Terminus is:
…heavily inspired by Hyper. It is, however, designed for people who need to get things done.
Them sound like fighting words. But what does “designed for people who need to get things done” mean, exactly? From the feature list in the README, I think maybe it means that it takes Windows more seriously than Hyper and handles printing output more quickly. But that’s just a guess…
I’d love to see a roundup and comparison of this new breed of Electron-based terminals. Anybody game?
That’s a big claim (but well-hedged with the use of ‘probably’). What else does
