Now this is something very very cool.
This is great if you have a lot of console commands, you’re tired of working with a shell history, or you’re trying new applications that need long strings of flags. Or you have a library of favorite commands, or you’re comparing configuration files, or … or … or …
You get the idea. If you like the idea of command-line life, but you prefer a full graphical desktop, this is a good starting point.
If you’re new to console commands, this will give you a two-click library to run them from, plus a gaggle of tabbed interfaces to experiment with.
It’s not purist, you’re not taking much of a stand for minimalism and it’s not going to win you any geek points from the office IT staff. Those guys and girls will always know more than you, and they won’t let you forget it. 😈
But it’s ridiculous fun, easy as pie to manage and doesn’t require much more effort beyond point-and-click to get started.
P.S.: That’s the AUR version, which seems to hide the executable in an odd place — /usr/share/applications/clicompanion/clicompanion. Or at least it was odd for me. I believe there is an Ubuntu version; no hints on where that executable is. 🙂
