One of the best CLI utility I have used in a while

Having worked on Linux early in my career, it is hard to get away from the cli. I continue using cli as much as I can and am constantly on the look out of tools that can make my life easier.

Last week, I came across The Fuck utility. This is literally one of the best utility I have installed and used in a very long time.

I learned typing as a school subject when I was 16. Yes, I can type fast, but when it comes to cli commands, I’m error prone. And every time I type in a command that doesn’t work – 90% of the time its because of a spelling mistake or a missing character. I would literally blurt out “fuck” in my mind and roll my eyes and in some cases out of frustration I would type in “fuck” multiple times.

Well now, I literally type fuck and it auto corrects my command and voilà.

It works for most of the commands I use on a daily basis and my usage isn’t vast. I mainly use GitHub, Docker, node.js, curl, etc. Here is a demo from their GitHub page:

No. I do not use CLI for email.
