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.


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.

Universal configuration monitoring and system of record for IT.

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.

Alias for getting OpenPGP keys for Launchpad PPAs on Ubuntu

Makes it easy to add keys to new ppa sources entries in apt sources.list

Now to add the key for the chromium-daily ppa:

launchpadkey 4E5E17B5

Alternatives

There are 2 alternatives - vote for the best!

Terminal - Alternatives
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:PPA_TO_ADD

There is no longer a need to add PGP keys for Ubuntu Launchpad PPA's.

The add-apt-repository command creates a new file for the PPA in /etc/sources.list.d/ then adds the PPA's keys to the apt keyring automatically. No muss, no fuss.

Know a better way?

If you can do better, submit your command here.

What others think

Pretty neat, thanks!

Just a thing, there is an extra space that needs to be removed:

--recv -keys needs to be --recv-keys
