My favorite CLI Tools for improved productivity.

These are my top 5 favorites. Use them to make working with #terminal easier and efficient. - YMMV

First and foremost, if you are on Mac replace your terminal with iTerm, a much more powerful powerful terminal emulator.

  1. Fishshell: I love the autosuggestions. Saves way too much time. There are many other useful features as well.

  2. thefuck: Misspelled a command? Use this simple command to correct typos. There is no need to retype it.

  3. HomeBrew: Easy installation of apps. On Mac, the cask install feature comes in handy and removes the need to drag applications.

  4. autojump: Forget cd. This is a much faster way to navigate your filesystem. It maintains a database of the directories you use the most from the command line.

  5. TLDR: Concise man pages with lots of examples, just the way we want.
