What's your favourite command-line tool that makes you πŸ’― more productive?

I started a Twitter thread on this subject and got a ton of interesting replies, and I thought it would be useful to collect it here too!

Leave your top choice (only one!) in the comments πŸ‘‡

I have a little bash script that takes a screenshot and copies it to the clipboard based on a (drawn rectangle) selection. It's probably my favourite.

#!/usr/bin/env bash

scrot -a $(slop -f '%x,%y,%w,%h') "$FILENAME"
xclip -selection clipboard -t image/png -i "$FILENAME"
rm -f "$FILENAME"
notify-send "Sshot taken"
