What homebrew programs/scripts/commands/websites have you created?

As developers we often want to increase productivity and streamline our workflow. One of the ways we like to do this is to roll our own tools to 'scratch our own itch'.

I'm interested in hearing what sort of programs, scripts, commands, websites you have created to help out.

To start off, I use docker for local development and it can be quite tiresome typing out docker kill $(docker ps -q) to kill all current docker instances, then running cd /PROJECT then running docker-compose up -d. To improve on this I created a command which runs all three of these commands in order and the PROJECT is a parameter passed into the command so now I just need to run dc PROJECT and I can start working.
