My favorite command-line utilities
Vitaly Belman

Nice post. Thanks for sharing!!

Recently I discovered a tool to use in the MacOS command-line: caffeinate — prevent the system from sleeping on behalf of a utility — to avoid going to System Preferences and change the energy saver properties just to forget to change it back later.

You can use it with a program, e.g. caffeinate -i make to stay on until the program is over. Check the man page for other parameters.

Like what you read? Give Wladimir Braguini a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
