What's this?

commandlinefu.com is the place to record those command-line gems that you return to again and again.

Delete that bloated snippets file you've been using and share your personal repository with the world. That way others can gain from your CLI wisdom and you from theirs too. All commands can be commented on, discussed and voted up or down.

Get involved!

You can sign-in using OpenID credentials, or register a traditional username and password.

First-time OpenID users will be automatically assigned a username which can be changed after signing in.

UpGuard checks and validates configurations for every major OS, network device, and cloud provider.

Stay in the loop…

Follow the Tweets.

Every new command is wrapped in a tweet and posted to Twitter. Following the stream is a great way of staying abreast of the latest commands. For the more discerning, there are Twitter accounts for commands that get a minimum of 3 and 10 votes - that way only the great commands get tweeted.

Grabs video from dv firewire camera, saves it on file and plays it scaled down on ffplayer.

Useful to do Google+ Hangouts, and if the internet connection fails, there is still the recorded backup on the computer.

"capturefile" is the filename prefix that will be stored on disc.

Functions: tee

easy way to setup an "internet radio sation", pre-requisite, create an account at an icecast server, in this example, just created beforehand an account at giss.tv.

Change the word password, with the respective real password you created at server.

Make sure to have installed rec, oggnec, oggfwd and tee.

I have a mixer connected at line in, so I can mix music and microphone.

This also will produce a local recorded copy of the session, it will be called "streamdump.ogg"
