A tiny python application that abstracts viewing/interacting with your console history.

Project description


A little tool to visually browse your console history.

What it looks like to scan through your history now:



Argument Description
-s, --search Filter history by regex.
--c Don't invoke selected command, instead copy to clipboard.

Known Issues

  • Still uses subprocess to invoke. It should be mostly the same given that environment variables are passed in, but a straightforward return of the command is something that would be better.
  • Only supports Windows and Powershell.
  • Only adds to the long-term history. Not the history of the current shell (available via up/down)


Yes, I am entirely aware that I could get the same affect in powershell with Get-History. Not the point!
