      While I've been teaching myself my first programming language (Python), I've been getting more into using the terminal as much as possible to build familiarity and get comfortable. This has opened my eyes to so many useful utilities and makes me curious as to what there is out there that I haven't heard of yet.


      My favorites so far:

      exa - A modern version of "ls"

      youtube-dl - Download videos from youtube.com or other video platforms with various options

      hledger - Plain text double-entry accounting software based on ledger written in Haskell

      thefuck - App that corrects a spelling mistake in the previous command by typing "fuck"

      spicetify-cli - Customizes the Spotify client with themes and extensions

      spotifyd - Lightweight Spotify daemon

      spotify-tui - Control Spotify in the terminal

      neofetch - Launch tool that can display ASCII art or pictures and general system information

      I'm on macOS but I'm almost certain all of these are cross-platform.


      What are your favorite or "must-have" CLI packages?
