I was just looking for a clean implementation of a meditation app. I just want something that would get me to meditating as fast as I can.

I don’t want to sign up or be offered a subscription or a paid course, or to even hear a guide. The most popular one like Headspace, and Calm had IAPs and probably some sort of analytics (to keep the shareholders informed! Results have to be measured somehow!).

I really just wanted a simple meditation app that got to the point as fast and as beautiful as possible.

So I made my own app…

In this article, we will learn how to write a custom Fish shell function.

What is Fish?

Aside from being delicious sea food, Fish is a shell intended as a modern alternative to Bash or sh. You can install it from your package manager or you can compile the latest version from their GitHub Repo.

It offers built-in autosuggestions, man-page completions, 24-bit colours, and even offers web based configuration. It’s quite friendly.

Suffice to say, it is much like zsh, and definitely friendlier than Bash.

The Task

We will write a script that will extract the audio from a Youtube video using youtube-dl.

Feel free to tweak the command to your liking. …
