Useful command line tools

These are some the command line tools I use regularly and are not part of a standard POSIX environement.

Generally I prefer tools that are simple, fast and do not require lots of dependencies.

My CLI environement: I use Bash inside Alacritty with the JetBrains Mono font.

aria2

A multi-protocol downloader.

bat

A cool replacement to cat with syntax highlighting and git integration.

chezmoi

A great manager for your dotfiles. You can find my configuration files here.

exa

ls on steroids with more features and better defaults.

fd

An alternative to find which is a lot more natural to use.

restic

Excellent backup tool.

ripgrep

Turbocharged grep perfect for searching a code base.

Syncthing

A decentralized file synchronisation tool.

Vifm

A light and fast terminal file manager using vim-like commands.
