Command Line Interface Pages: project announcement


Hi folks! Some time ago I’ve started Command Line Interface Pages (or, CLIP) project to help users learn terminal commands, and not just that.

To get started install the official page render via:

wget -O "$temp"
make -f "$temp" remote-install

and then invoke something like clip-view --theme awesome cat and get:

Now Bash + Sed are used to implement toolkit, but I think everything will be available in Go too.

How can I help the project?

  • You can star it, to make it more popular.
  • Create some help pages for commands.
  • Enhance toolkits or their unit tests.

Questions for team

As the project author, I am interested in wide spreading it. To make help pages more accessible, I think some sort of GUI inside IDE can be built. So not to make a short story long, here are my concerns:

  • How do I get started with building GUI for What should I know? Maybe you can share some useful tips and links? :slight_smile:
  • What is required to make some project to be included in your IDE? In other words, how popular (how much org followers, repo stars) do u expect at the bare minimum?

This can probably be done with extensions and requires no followers/repo stars, all you have to do is sign up for the beta.
