    Project mention: Show HN:, a searchable collection of commands from across the Web | | 2022-05-11

    Hi HN,

    I’m Aloke, one of the co-creators of ( and an engineer at Warp ( is a curated, open-source collection of popular terminal commands that lets you quickly search for hard-to-remember terminal commands by title, tag, and description. Each of these pages are also indexed by Google to provide a consistent, well-formatted alternative to the variety of sources these commands turn up now, like StackOverflow.

    As an engineer who uses the terminal frequently, I often have trouble remembering the exact command I want to execute if it’s not easily searchable within my terminal. Some commands that I run infrequently don’t match up with the underlying task they perform, which makes it even harder to find. For example, to undo my last git commit, I have to search for “git reset”, which I never remember because I’m always thinking “undo”ing my last commit instead of “reset”ing.

    We built so that there would be a centralized place to quickly find and search commands based on their name, description, or category. If you are a Warp user, these commands are also integrated directly into Warp as a feature we call Workflows ( so that you can quickly search and execute them directly from the terminal.

    These commands are open-source ( and we would love contributions to make even more useful. So far, we’ve already had 85 commands created by 22 unique contributors.

    I’m excited to hear what you think of! Our team sincerely hopes this will become a go-to tool on the Internet to consult when developers need to remember a difficult command, either directly on the site or by discovering a page when searching Google for help with a command.

    If you’re interested, join Warp’s Discord ( and follow us on Twitter (

    Project mention: Escaping (?) | | 2022-02-27
