Shell (zsh)

Session Management (tmux)

Organize your terminal with sessions and use fzf for fuzzy create/finding/deleting of sessions

Search (ripgrep)

ripgrep in action

Fuzzy Finding (fzf)

Now you can run “fo” fuzzy-find and open a file

Terminal Prompt (Spaceship)

Welcome to the future… but actually the present. Hackers/astronauts only.

Changing directories (z)

cd ~/code/personal/cool/hacker
z hacker

Bonus Hacker Tools

telnet towel.blinkenlights.nl
Pro Tip: Watch star wars in another tmux pane while working. No one will question you.
God bless the commands in the terminal
