Bash fwf ranger
November 8, 2020bash debian
I was recently looking for videos to help me improve my bash terminal skills and found this video by Marie-Helene Burle Fun tools to simplify your life in the command line
The two tools i really liked and have found really useful are
fzf is a fuzzy search for the terminal. To search for docs in the directory which contain ansible run
ls | fzf and i can type ansible and it shows the files that contain ansible.
To search for ansible only use:
ls | fzf -e -q "ansible"
ranger is a terminal file manager that is nice and quick and lets me navigate and view the file content.
both of these tools can be installed with
apt-get install fzf ranger
I am always on the lookout for more tools that improve and speed up the workflow.
