    1. From the command line, you can navigate through files and folders on your computer:

      • pwd outputs the name of the current working directory.
      • ls lists all files and directories in the working directory.
      • cd switches you into the directory you specify.
      • mkdir creates a new directory in the working directory.
      • touch creates a new file inside the working directory.

      You can use helper commands to make navigation easier:

      • clear clears the terminal
      • tab autocompletes the name of a file or directory
      • ↑ and ↓ allow you to cycle through previous commands

    1. Second, that you see more and more laptops running things like i3 and dwm than back in 2010 -- and these tools haven't gotten any better in these ten years.

      vim tools/plugins on the other hand have gotten supremely powerful & weird & awesome.

      i actually really love this point. there's some semi-interesting things happening with Wayland desktops, some changes, but overall i think most Linux users have kind of subsisted in semi-stasis. and we don't need top down change, from our WMs, but we should be "growing-in" to our environments, getting better, and we i think the collaboration & exploration is still very sparse, few charts or maps or guides come out. the "here be dragons" edge has a lot of healthy exploration deep into it, but it's very lone territory, the charts rare & hard to understand, hard to follow. there's some radical elements of success & exploration, but there are so few enduring wayfinding systems, so little communalizing of exploration or growth.

    1. as a more experienced user I know one can navigate much more quickly using a terminal than using the hunt and peck style of most file system GUIs

      As an experienced user, this claim strikes me as false.

      I often start in a graphical file manager (nothing special, Nautilus on my system, or any conventional file explorer elsewhere), then use "Open in Terminal" from the context menu, precisely because of how much more efficient desktop file browsers are for navigating directory hierarchies in comparison.

      NB: use of a graphical file browser doesn't automatically preclude keyboard-based navigation.

    1. It does this by creating links to specially crafted URLs using custom schemes (ie. "txmt", "subl", "mvim"). I prefer to use standard CLI vim in iTerm.

      I have similar problem: want to use regular vim in tilix terminal

    1. tabset makes life easier for iTerm2 users, enabling easy setting of tab and window titles, badges, and colors. If you have a lot of tabs/windows in operation simultaneously, tabset helps to visually distinguish them.

    1. az disk revoke-access Revoke a resource's read access to a managed disk.

      Here's why it's important to revoke access (rom Upload a VHD to Azure or copy a managed disk to another region - Azure PowerShell):

      After the upload is complete, and you no longer need to write any more data to the disk, revoke the SAS. Revoking the SAS will change the state of the managed disk and allow you to attach the disk to a VM.

    1. The best way to find branches I've recently used is to use the following command: git for-each-ref --sort=-committerdate refs/heads/
