Any cool command line programs that you guys recommend for linux?

youtube-dl is one I recommend to start. You can download porn with it if that is your thing.
>>

>Any cool command line programs that you guys recommend for linux?
i don't think there is any program on linux thats exclusively a gui programm
pretty much every programm is a command line programm, you just get an additional gui for some of them
>>
>>46938394
so would the appropriate question be just "what are some cool programs in linux?"
>>
>>46938445
convert ? ssh ? i have no idea how you define "cool"
youtube-dl is a tool to download videos from some streaming services
ffmpeg is a tool to encode/reencode videos,split them, cut them, etc
there's a tool for everything.
>>
livestreamer
weechat
ncmpcpp
>>
>>46938335
htop, cmus, mpd + ncmpcpp, ncdu are pretty basic
>>
>>46938335
>Any cool command line programs that you guys recommend for linux?
I'm sure there are lots, but everyone here will be too autistic to just answer you and instead will debate the meaning of a gui versus command line program, 'the definition of cool', etc. as you can see here.

I'd just google it. (which they'll say 'startpage!!!' and argue over how to google cool command line programs).
>>
>>46938335
weechat for irc
ncmpcpp music player
pianobar pandora without the ads
youtube-viewer (similar to youtube-dl but you stream the video in mplayer or mpv and you can chose the quality).
ncdu Ncurses disk usage
newsbeuter - ncurses rss reader that has a hidden podcaster (podbeuter)
ranger - file manager
tmux - term multiplexer

there's a shit load more but those are the ones I frequently use, add some more anons.

don't youtube-dl already do that? i mean, it works perfectly for me, I just go "mpv URL" and it plays the best quality video.
>>
Can you search with youtube-dl instead of having to go on youtube anyways an dpost the url?
>>
>>46938807
just set a browser in your env variables and with the -H flag you will view the man pages in your default browser.
It's kind of useful when reading a long ass man page not when checking for a specific flag on the go.
>>
>>46938849
>>46938858
this, also with youtube-viewer you can sign in to your account and view your subscriptions, like dislike sub and favorite and display video comments.
>>
>>46938501
if "cool" means "use almost every day" then convert and ssh are in the top five. rsync, gpg2, mpd + the sonata GUI, irssi + figlet, ncdu, mount + umount, wireless, pkg_tools, cvs, etc.

It will automatically add a function to your .zshrc or .bashrc.
It adds a command: betterman.
When you type for example:
betterman bash
it will put colored manpage into your browser, according to your vim colorscheme.

Make sure that you have $BROWSER set and vim installed.
