Developers :
Work as efficient as possible!

Also developers :
Pressing the arrow up ⬆️ in the terminal 90 times to find a command that could have been manually typed out in 1 sec

    But I dont want to type out:

    tail -f /var/logs/thisProgram/thisFolder/logs/logsFromToday.log

    Who's got time for that when I know I used that not so long ago.... 10 minutes later 🤦‍♂️fuck it, I'll type it myself.

    For me it's mostly about reproducibility when smashing that arrow up key: calling consistent commands for various versions of a script when testing

    I said it before. And I will say it again:
    history | grep [whatever]

    That's basically a description of me 😁

    Y'all motherfuckers need reverse-i-search and fzf.

    @C0D4 And then you inadvertently find the one with the typo in it and it doesn't work

    I love zsh for that. You type the first few letters and arrowing up only shows you commands that start with that.

    Basically reverse-search on sterioids.

    Ctrl+r will be your friend :-)

    control-R search is much more efficient than typing long sensitive commands.

    Well, we all have our weakness and sometimes, I just don't feel like typing severals long lines
