    :cherry_blossom: A command-line fuzzy finder

    As someone wanting to modernize "the CLI", you are faced with the fact that there actually is no single CLI app – there are terminals and shells. Trying to fix the experience at the shell level can be somewhat effective – e.g. ohmyzsh, fzf, thefuck – but it can never fix fundamental accessibility issues and it will never make the terminal feel like a modern app.

  • thefuck

    Magnificent app which corrects your previous console command.

  • InfluxDB

    Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.. InfluxDB is the Time Series Platform where developers build real-time applications for analytics, IoT and cloud-native services. Easy to start, it is available in the cloud or on-premises.

  • Warp

    Warp is a blazingly-fast modern Rust based GPU-accelerated terminal built to make you and your team more productive.

    At Warp we are building a new Rust-based terminal that keeps what’s best about the CLI while modernizing and upgrading the experience. One awesome thing about how we are building it is that it works with your existing shell so it's easy to try.

  • ohmyzsh

    🙃 A delightful community-driven (with 2,100+ contributors) framework for managing your zsh configuration. Includes 300+ optional plugins (rails, git, macOS, hub, docker, homebrew, node, php, python, etc), 140+ themes to spice up your morning, and an auto-update tool so that makes it easy to keep up with the latest updates from the community.
