Nifty command lines

I remember when scary terminals became required for web programmers. You had to, gasp, run commands to do your work1.

Later, I discovered that I relied on random websites for stuff that command line interfaces (CLIs) do better. Like, convert a font, compress a video, etc.
If websites can break or start showing NSFW ads, CLIs have been around for years, if not decades. It’s also easier to remember a command than a bookmark.



I recommend using Homebrew to install your command line tools. It works on macOS, Linux, and Windows using WSL2.
