    a cozy nest for your scripts (by ianthehenry)

    Yeah :(

    The trouble is `sd` is just so easy to type on a qwerty keyboard, and it's such a nice mnemonic for "script directory." I've thought about renaming it, but I can't think of anything I like nearly as much.

  • sd

    Intuitive find & replace CLI (sed alternative)

    I love the idea and I'll try it out, but a heads up in case the author is around: the name sd clashes with another tool [0], which works as an alternative to sed.

    I use that one pretty often, so maybe my first managed script will be one which symlinks binaries :)


  • just

    🤖 Just a command runner

    I've found the script runner "just" to be worth using.

    just (at a glance) is like a Makefile, but with some nice UX improvements that make it worth using. e.g. with `just --choose`, it runs fzf against the targets.

  • garden

    Garden grows and cultivates collections of Git trees (by davvid)

    If you're into this kinda thing then then you might be interested in my take on improving over a "big pile o scripts" (and repos).

    Garden is a multi-repo powertool for running custom commands and mashing random shell scripts and loosely-coupled repos into a version-controllable config file. If you're weird like me you might like it.
