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.
If you have a new feature suggestion or find a bug, please get in touch via http://commandlinefu.uservoice.com/
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.
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.
Use your favourite RSS aggregator to stay in touch with the latest commands. There are feeds mirroring the 3 Twitter streams as well as for virtually every other subset (users, tags, functions,…):
Subscribe to the feed for:
rsync from source to dest all between >30
rsyncs files to a server excluding listed files
also a file can be used to exclude common exclude rules and/or to exclude a ton of files, like so:
rsync --exclude-from '~/.scripts/exclude.txt'
where exclude.txt has one rule per line:
-P displays a progress meter
-z tells rsync to use compression
Put it into your sh startup script (I use
alias scpresume='rsync --partial --progress --rsh=ssh'
in bash). When a file transfer via scp has aborted, just use scpresume instead of scp and rsync will copy only the parts of the file that haven't yet been transmitted.
Create a exact mirror of the local folder "/root/files", on remote server 'remote_server' using SSH command (listening on port 22)
(all files & folders on destination server/folder will be deleted)
copying files from one server to another using rysnc. Root access need to be allowed on the destination.
transfer files from localhost to a remotehost.
You will be prompted for a password unless you have your public keys set-up.
