Where do you find your terminal tools and script?

Hello,

I think this forum is where I discovered most of the great unix/terminal tool that I use today, like nnn, gitui or ncdu.

I was wondering where do you find those cool tools and unix scripts ?

Honestly, the terminal tools thread has been so amazing I am thinking about making it into its own section with 1 tool per post.

I agree ! I would make sense since kakoune rely so much on external tool !

Also, I believe their is a real culture of people relying strongly on terminal, unix, simple hackable tool that does one thing but does it well etc… But I feel that this community doesn’t have a proper name, or doesn’t have dedicated media yet

r/commandline is also a good resource.

Agree, I can’t think of a name but it definitely needs one!

A nice list of tools respecting the KISS philosophy (the suckless one to be more accurate) can be found here:

yeah I’m not a big fan of suckless.

They didn’t accept kakoune in the list because it was written in C++, while they have vim in it.
Even if C++ might not be the less sucking language, kakoune source is way more simple, small and hackable than vim.
For me they seems to have a culture praising the “good old C time”. The few software I use from them are good but they are all written in one big messy C file that are impossible to read and hack. I’m not a big fan of their culture, but I do respect their work and use their software.
