what is so good about the command line?

it seemed to work fine for linux torvalds - he built the kernel & git using just c, the cli & emacs

maybe we can learn something from him...

or gee idk, maybe that is how you automate back ends and pipelines & %90 of the useful work done by computers

suggest dotfile configs

onto the goodies!


  • turn on vi mode - turns on a laser guidance system aka vim keybindings vs throwin poop at monkeys
  • turn on tab complete - turns on a jetpack vs crawling through mud in a minefield

config file .inputrc

set editing-mode vi
bind TAB:menu-complete

bash config




  • pathogen
  • ctrlp
  • limelight & goyo
