  • murex

    Bash-like shell and scripting environment with advanced features designed for safety and productivity (eg smarter DevOps tooling)

    I've gotten into Murex recently and I really like it. It's a bit of a learning curve if you're coming from bash/zsh (like I was) but it's not too bad and I think its syntax makes a lot more sense than bash/zsh.

  • dotfiles

    My configuration files (by arp242)

I have a little script which takes care of that for me, but really, this is far harder than it needs to be.

  • lazycli

    Turn static CLI commands into TUIs with ease
