Cool new tools

Just back from my vacation I learned two cool new tools on the first day. Of course both are in EPEL and Fedora.

  • The Silver Search: ag $STRING is an alternative to grep -ir $STING . But a lot of the hell faster, nicer output and multithreaded.
  • myrepos: From the developer of etckeeper, to pull, commit and doing other stuff with multiple repos at the same time. Simply got to each git repo run mr register and than to a mr pull to pull all git repos at the same time.
