Linux Overview/Development



If you ever want to package something for Linux, Repology covers where.

Web Tools


  • Consider an alias like alias q="ls | grep --color -i".
  • The history command (history search).
  • Process management: & fg bg jobs kill disown nohup (CTRL+C/Z).
  • kill -SIGSTOP and kill -SIGCONT for pause/resume.
  • pgrep to search for PID by name.
  • script to record shell session in file (and cat or less -R to view).
  • From less to edit, press v.
  • Use type -a not which as the latter is problematic

Alternative Tools

  • ncdu (du -smh, df -l)
  • nnn - Terminal File Browser
