fzfWhen you’re constantly producing code and documentation, mistakes will happen. Some will be easy to spot and others may elude you. We know that attention to detail counts. If someone finds a typo in your documentation or their code, they may be inclined to ask themselves what else may be wrong. In order to avoid the impression of carelessness, let’s automate the finding and fixing of typos.Last month, I talked about how to add tab completion to a CLI program, using fzf. Next we talked about a more generic solution which adds a preview window to a file search.
Today we will look at how to combine the knowledge from these two posts. What we want to do is have our custom completion for the prove CLI, but with a preview window. The solution looks like this: Read More...A few days ago, I talked about how to add tab completion to a CLI program, using fzf.
As usual, there’s more than one way to do it (TIMTOWDI) and I’d like to look at another approach which also uses fzf.
One of the neat things about fzf is that it can provide you with configurable preview window. The following snippet will require fzf and bat, which is another handy tool which I encourage you to explore. Read More...I like to find what I need quickly, so I make heavy use of tab completion at the command line. Lately, I’ve been using fzf more and more to do this. It’s a wonderful tool. I won’t go in depth about fzf here, but if you haven’t checked it out, please do. I think it’s well worth it.
What I want to do today is to explain how to harness the power of fzf to add tab completion to an arbitrary command line program. Read More...
