Others’ scripts and programs I like and fanboy about

  • Ack: like grep but with good defaults for programmers. Ignores version control and build directories; trivial to customise.

    If you use Ubuntu, apt install ack-grep and define an alias ack=ack-grep in your shell profile.

  • Fish, the friendly interactive shell. Has better syntax, great defaults (syntax highlighting!), and better tab-completion (substrings, not just prefixes of filenames). Defining and saving an alias is as simple as this:

    alias s sublime_text
    funcsave s

    This persists the newly created function s to ~/.config/fish/functions/, and it will automatically be loaded in all currently-running and future shells! No more manual fiddling around with ~/.profile.
