CLI apps

The old #! used to include alot more cli applications, some of which I sorta miss since moving to xfce. But I may start using more of them again, especially if I go back to a super-minimal setup. Anyhow, I started thinking it'd be nice to have a thread/"how-to"/wiki entry or whatnot with a list of really interesting and useful cli tools.

I'll start with one I just read about that looks good,

Re: CLI apps

I am hoping it is ok to ask about cli apps too?

Is there anything that would allow some type of auto complete of bash history?

Thanks

I use ctrl-r but it only pull the last/first it finds...  If it would tab from there as a listing of all relevant that would be ideal

Thanks

Re: CLI apps

@VastOne - I use this code in ~/.inputrc

"\e[A":history-search-backward
"\e[B":history-search-forward

When pressing Up or Down to go through history, it will match based on anything you have typed thus far. If you don't type anything, it goes through your history as usual. However if you type "vi", it will match any results beginning "vi" such as vim, vim foo, vim bar, etc.

Many thanks anonymous - that's really neat.

edit: Went off and googled up this one too:

set completion-ignore-case On

Case-insensitive tab completion.

The ironic thing is that website doesn't look very optimized for cli-browsers like elinks. So I guess, I'm forced to use firefox more, even though I feel the most comfortable browsing in elinks, despite that fact a lot of modern websites look terrible on it.

Indeed. It looks like a modern art masterpiece in links. Gonna tell them...

EDIT: I think they could arrest you for saving this captcha in Germany. Take care.

Modern masterpiece isn't what I would call it when viewing it in a cli browser, it's more of a modern mess to me.

Re: CLI apps

mc -> two panel file manager
w3m -> an alternative to elinks/links, i think it is a bit more keyboard friendly
identicurses ->  an identi.ca client
wicd-curses -> a wicd cli client
emacs -nw -> a cli emacs with all its goodies
tmux -> a "cli window" tiling manager wink It is like screen, but better big_smile
mplayer "http://mylinuxpodcast/ep/xyz" -> a cli v. of mplayer
feh -> for viewing photos etc

If you keep hitting ctrl-r it keeps searching backwards through history. With ctrl-s you can search forward (in case you skipped over your desired result). “The problem with Ctrl-S however is that it sometimes collides with XON/XOFF flow control” — if it doesn't work for you, read this.

Btw, great autocomplete method anonymous; tnx!

gray background with cyan links (for 16 color terminal elinks), no thanks ;P.

Im using elinks now, changed some key bindings so it acts more like vi: j/k movement and f to follow a link via TypeAhead (like follow link in Vimium [Chrome] or Vimperator [Firefox]).

Initially I was curious how you handle without embedded images. Turns out clicking links opens in your app of choice, not bad at all, and light on bandwidth!

side note: these forums look pretty good in it too big_smile

Re: CLI apps

Why is vim missing in this list? ;D
I would suggest "moc" (.. easy to use music player, I like it very much), irssi (.. I could not even think of using Xchat again!) and, as said vim - the last one is hard to learn, but if you figured out how it works, you'll love it!
