deer

deer is a file navigator for zsh heavily inspired by ranger.

Pros:

  • launches much faster
  • retains the terminal contents and only uses a small part of the terminal

Cons:

  • offers only a small subset of ranger’s features
  • needs zsh

asp

asp is a tool to manage the build source files used to create Arch Linux packages. It attempts to replace the abs tool, offering more up to date sources (via the svntogit repositories) and uses a sparse checkout model to conserve diskspace.

#steampunkchat on Twitter as viewed through the GNU/Linux Command Line apps Irssi & Twirssi.
I just like the look, feel, and spare utility of these command line applications.

Me too! Though I quit using Twirssi after it got really heavy in use for some reason (made irssi in general slow). For µ-blogging I use identicurse (only for identi.ca) these days.

BSD for Linux Users

onethingwell:

A great overview.

I’ve been drifting in a BSDwards direction for a while now—Arch Linux is decidedly BSD-like in its init system and ABS, I have an OpenBSD shell account with devio.us—without actually taking the plunge.

"The term computation itself comes from the Latin computare, com-‘together’ and putare ‘to reckon, to think or to section to compare the pieces’. To compute, then, is ‘to count, or to calculate’. For computer scientists, computation (or information processing) is a field of research that investigates what can and what cannot be calculated. Closely allied with this is a certain comportment towards the world maintained through computational skills and techniques."

Four Word Passwords

onethingwell:

This xkcd cartoon makes a convincing case for using passwords made up of four, easy-to-remember dictionary words instead of hard-to-remember gubbins like &p4$$w0Rd1!.

Here’s how to generate a quick four-worder from the command line:

shuf -n4 /usr/share/dict/words | tr -d '\n'

Reverse Scrolling for X11

onethingwell:

After giving ‘natural’ scrolling a chance in Lion and getting used to it almost immediately, I found myself struggling to scroll in the right direction on my netbook.

There are, as you’d expect, quite a few different ways to get upside down scrolling going under X11.

You can add the following…

linuxbookpro:

Lightweight window resize manager for LXDE and XFCE
XFCE and LXDE lack some of the useful keyboard shortcuts of GNOME and KDE, but you can easily create your own with wmctrl.
Download for Arch Linux in terminal # pacman -S wmctrl
After this tiny package is installed you can use terminal to resize your windows.
$ wmctrl -r  :ACTIVE: -e 1,800,29,800,1148
The above command takes the active window and moves it over 800 px on the x-axis, 29px down the y-axis, 800 px wide and 1148 px high.
Additionally you can use your keyboard settings in LXDE or XFCE to bind a shortcut. I chose to bind Left-SHIFT + CTRL + Right Arrow to the above command; this allows me to move the window to the right side of the window and take up half the width.

List of Chromium Command Line Switches

A long, automatically updated list of options, most of them unavailable in Chromium’s Preferences.

On my netbook I use --memory-model=low, --disable-desktop-notifications and, sometimes, --disable-internal-flash.

units

onethingwell:

The ‘units’ program converts quantities expressed in various scales to their equivalents in other scales. The ‘units’ program can handle multiplicative scale changes as well as nonlinear conversions such as Fahrenheit to Celsius (which may appear to be linear but is actually affine). The units are defined in an external data file. You can use the extensive data file that comes with this program, or you can provide your own data file to suit your needs.

You can use units at the command line or interactively, like so:

units
586 units, 56 prefixes
You have: 7 gills
You want: pints
    * 1.75
    / 0.57142857

Keyboard-fu

This is an extension that lets you assign hotkeys to arbitrary actions, which are just javascript code snippets (Coffeescript coming soon). The extension provides an API (small but evolving) which includes functions for tab management, opening bookmarks, launching bookmarklets, page scrolling etc., and also jQuery is available along with the whole DOM of the page.
