I’ve been using the Unix command line since 1983 and like most software developers, the Terminal app is a permanent fixture in my Dock. Over the years I’ve learned a lot of things that make working in this environment more productive, but even old dogs like me are constantly learning new tricks.
As much as I love them, these long “trick lists” on Stack Overflow have a problem: they’re poorly organized with little narrative describing why you’d want to use a technique. This long homage to the command line is my attempt to remedy that situation.
I’ve used the Terminal for years between Unix, Linux, BSD and Mac systems, and I have to admint that no matter how much you think you already know, make sure to set aside some time to read this amazing collection of Terminal tricks.
