Welcome! Shell-fu is a place for all those little command line goodies that you come across and then can never find again when you need them. Hopefully we'll end up with a comprehensive and easily usable resource for anyone working with the shell. We've a little way to go yet, and we'd appreciate your comments (just hit the 'Contact' link in the menu above).

If you see an entry you like (or dislike) please use the arrows to vote up or down. You can also submit your own tips/tricks and they will be added to the site once checked over by our moderator monkeys.

Have fun!


Thu, 16 Apr 2009Announcing the Shell-fu Store

We love the command line, and we love books, and as far as we are concerned there are few things better than combining the two. That's why we've decided to add a new section to the site, sharing some of our recommendations.


The Shell-fu book store runs in association with Amazon so you can buy anything you see that takes your fancy. We make a few pennies, you learn some cool new things and hopefully come back and share them here - everyone's a winner!
