  • ripgrep

    ripgrep recursively searches directories for a regex pattern while respecting your gitignore

  • Project mention: Fzf advanced integration in Powershell | dev.to | 2024-06-05

    If you want to integrate fzf with rg, fd, bat to fuzzy find files, directories or ripgrep the content of a file and preview using bat, but the fzf document only has commands for Linux shell (bash,...), and you want to achieve that on your Windows Machine using Powershell, this post may be for you.

  • the_silver_searcher

    A code-searching tool similar to ack, but faster.

  • Project mention: 9 tools, libraries and extensions our developer can't live without (and why) | dev.to | 2024-06-17

    There are other CLI search tools for code: grep, ripgrep, etc. or actual search tools (Sourcegraph, Github, IDEs), but I always reach for Silver Searcher/Ag. Ag is a code-searching tool similar to ack, but faster. The syntax is pretty good and it’s very helpful when I just want something basic such as when I’m just looking for the string Config (I don’t use complex regex).By the way fzf.zsh, combines ag with fzf to do instant full text search recursively over the current directory, and then pops you into vim at that exact file line.

  • Project mention: Bus ETA | /r/commandline | 2023-11-16

    Hi ! I'm currently in the process of building myself dashboards using sampler and / or WTF. I want a section with the live ETA of some buses stop from STM. I know they have an SMS option so that may be a lead but i've figured there might be a better way using iBus or something. Thanks in advance !!

    Project mention: Lnav Logfile Navigator | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-06-17

    It creates a patch file since the original file might've been modified.

    > - There are lots of different filtering capabilities, but there is no unified treatment of them. For example, `:hide-lines-before` and `:filter-out` are at their core the same type of operation: filtering. I should be able to pull up a list of all filters that are currently active and easily add new ones and toggle or delete existing ones.

    Adding the time filters to the "Filters" panel sounds like a reasonable request. I've added https://github.com/tstack/lnav/issues/1275 to track.

    > - I would expect to be able to create a new view of the data using SQL `SELECT`. A select statement is fundamentally about filtering out some rows (log lines), which feels like a filter, and selecting some particular columns (log fields) and hiding others. The latter point seems like it could be something that should be handled when https://github.com/tstack/lnav/issues/1274 is resolved.

    There is the `:filter-expr` command (https://docs.lnav.org/en/v0.12.2/commands.html#filter-expr-e...), have you tried that?

  • grex

    A command-line tool and Rust library with Python bindings for generating regular expressions from user-provided test cases

  • Project mention: grex 1.0.0 - Generate regular expressions from user-provided test cases | /r/Python | 2023-08-31
  • websocat

    Command-line client for WebSockets, like netcat (or curl) for ws:// with advanced socat-like functions

  • Project mention: Show HN: ScaleSocket – Turn any script into a multiplayer WebSocket server | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-09-20

    It's similar to running netcat in server mode, wrapping a script. It's even closer to doing that using websocat [1], whereby one does not have to do the websocket header juggling.

    The main difference is that while netcat or websocat will spawn a new process for each connecting client, ScaleSocket has a concept of rooms (channels). For a room, a process is spawned once only. All clients connecting to the same room are routed to the same process. This is not straight forward to do using the forementioned tools.

    There's a small comparison page [2] where I have mentioned some alternative tools.

  • ast-grep

    ⚡A CLI tool for code structural search, lint and rewriting. Written in Rust

  • Project mention: amber, a code search & replace tool | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-05-23

    ast-grep is based on tree-sitter parsers and most of the time is spent on parsing.

    There is some optimization to [skip parsing](https://github.com/ast-grep/ast-grep/blob/9f8ed5fb2abf35d928...) but generally I don't expect ast-grep can beat ripgrep or amber. (but sometimes ast-grep can beat grep due to parallel processing)
