cat with syntax highlighting, but is still compatible with pipes, etc. Really neat. I like the filename header.
A CLI for Jira. Maybe it’ll be faster than using the web interace???
Regardless, it supports a fancy config loading system that looks like I can configure it as part of my

A really nice tool in the UNIX philosphy of building simple, composible command line utilities.
entr can be piped to to run a command when the stream on the left hand side changes. This is
similar functionality to
livereload, etc, but is useful precisely because it is generic.
It also has a handy option for commands that don’t support signals or a modified stream &emdash;
entr to terminate the process and start it again, rather than trying to ‘hot reload’.
The website has heaps of examples with documentation on the additional options: http://eradman.com/entrproject/
TLDR pages aim to extend on
man pages with practical examples of common tasks. The website, https://tldr.sh/ is
usable as-is, but there are a bunch of command-line tools available. I’m trying to Node.js version, but there are
various options depending on the runtimes you have installed.
