CLIcompanion – Easy way of learning command line in Ubuntu

Sponsored Link
CLI Companion is an application that is used as a compliment to the Linux Terminal. People unfamiliar with the terminal will find CLIcompanion useful to become acquainted with the terminal. Using the built-in commands you can unlock the potential of the Terminal. Experienced users can use CLIcompanion's add command feature to build a command dictionary. Store commands as you come across them and no more do you have to search for them.

Install CLIcompanion in ubuntu 10.04

Open the terminal and run the following commands

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:clicompanion-devs/clicompanion-nightlies
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install clicompanion

Using CLIcompanion

You can open clicompanion from Applications->Accessories

Main Window

The CLIcompanion has three columns. The first column is the command. The second column shows you if the command needs information from the user. Some commands need a path to a file. Others might need a package name. The third column is the command description.

Add Command

The add command feature allows for three pieces of information to be stored for each command. Be mindful that not all commands will need the user variable field.

    At first glance I like CLIcompanion very much; thanks & congratulations. As a relative newbie there’s a couple of things that would make it much easier for me to use:

    – Enable searching by description as well as by command

    – Enable alphabetic sorting; again by description as well as command.

    Thanks, Alexander.
