Examples at the command line

Project description

eg provides examples at the command line.

Many commands can be difficult to remember. Man pages work great, but can provide too much information to be useful at a glance. You’ll likely still have to turn to the internet for some examples.

eg tries to minimize that need by providing useful examples at the command line. eg find will give you useful examples of the find command right in the terminal.

eg is extensible. If you have a particular command you like to use (like a specific use of awk, resetting a home server, etc) you can add these to a custom directory and eg will show you those results first when you type the relevant command.

eg is colorful. By default eg uses colors. This is pretty. You can customize these colors to whatever scheme you want.

See the webpage for more information.
