Going to be boring and say grep. I think a lot of people have it as a go-to tool to filter the returned output of a command into something useful.

I don't spend a lot of time in the terminal using Linux/Unix specific commands. Most of my time on the terminal is spend using Git, and increasingly more often, redis-cli

Yeah. git grep is super handy to find files with particular snippets of code.

I started with competitive programming recently and I used to save code as filename.py and then testcase_filename for the testcases. ls | grep -v testcase came in handy to code files and clear the noise.
