4 terminal applications with great command-line UIs
In this article, I’ll look at a shortcoming of command-line interfaces—discoverability—and a few ways to overcome this problem.
I love command lines. My first command line was DOS 6.2, back in 1997. I learned the syntax for various commands and showed off how to list hidden files in a directory (attrib). I would carefully craft my commands one character at a time. When I made a mistake, I would proceed to retype the command from the beginning. One fine day someone showed me how to traverse the history using the up and down arrow keys and I was blown away.
