Interesting! Would you mind going into more detail about how each of those improves upon their counterparts, or otherwise what they bring to the table?


httpie is a much more user-friendly alternative to curl, that allow pretty-printing and a lot of other cool features.

Bat is a paginated alternative to cat that also allow pretty-printing your code in the terminal.

Exa is also an alternative to ls with default pretty-print feature and git integration.

modd is a filesystem watcher that allows you to automate everything. I use it to run my unit tests or my server-side app when the codebase changes.
