fzf - CLI fuzzy finder

Easy to install (supposedly, I haven't tried it yet). Works within tmux too. Promises many good things.

I can vouch for it (if it means anything) it's really amazing both inside vim and outside. I use it for searching my own history and for completing cd and files (just type ** and hit tab in a prompt to launch it)

well, anything by junegunn is quite amazing. Looks really cool, though probably a bit over the top for my needs. But if I was a programmer, would definitely look into using it.

Switched back to Bash with this tool and that's it. Goodbye fancy shells.

I tried zsh for a while, and I like it, but it does not bring enough benefits for me to use it full time. Maybe if I used it more I would see more benefit, but I have too many machines with vanilla installs that only have bash and I am too lazy to install zsh everywhere. I tried fish for about five minutes. I would like to use busybox ash more, but again with the laziness... So it's bash for me everywhere.

Yeah, it is actually me wanted to be a cool kid here. But my home server has bash, and I always use bash in Emacs' shell-mode, so Fish was really just there in the terminal for little things. And those little things can be easily done with bash without installing and configuring a whole new shell.

Funny how many of us have moved away from the constant experimenting. I still have four different distros running on different machines, but I'm not building anything new or experimenting much at all these days. Still using Debian oldstable on the main machine; one of these days I might upgrade to stable :)

Yeah, the only thing that keeps my experiments alive is Emacs nowadays, but I often wonder if I am doing it just to convince myself I still want to find some meaning in IT after all.
