Compilation of modern CLI Tools (Unix, Shell, Terminal)

A nice compilation of modern CLI tools I just found when browsing through HackerNews:

These tools are mostly replacements for “classic” CLI programs, with a stronger focus on UX (= “modern”).

For me, the most interesting tools were fd (I find find very unintuitive to use), glances (especially the Docker container overview looks useful), gtop, hyperfine (I like benchmarking my own CLI scripts!), and procs.

Of the tools listed, I already use & highly recommend ripgrep, fzf (especially through the Ctrl+R backwards search enhancement), jq, and the website version of tldr.
