Shell History Cleaner is a simple program that cleans the bash/shell history for you.
Shell history is the commands that you see when pressing
Ctrl R (to search) in the terminal.
Install Rust/cargo. After that:
cargo install --force shell-history-cleaner shell-history-cleaner --dedup "$HISTFILE" # remove duplicates shell-history-cleaner --dedup --remove 'youtube-dl .*' "$HISTFILE" # also remove video downloads
USAGE: shell-history-cleaner [OPTIONS] <TARGET_FILE> ARGS: <TARGET_FILE> Target file to clean. You can use "$HISTFILE" to clean up the shell history. OPTIONS: -d, --dedup De-duplicate lines to only keep one last occurrence of each dup. -r, --remove <REMOVE> Lines to remove. For example, 'yt-dlp.*' will remove lines starting with 'yt-dlp'. Can be specified multiple times. The patterns are regular expressions, assuming the whole line is matched, as defined here: https://docs.rs/regex/latest/regex/#syntax Another real-life example: '(ps aux.*|git checkout .*|git branch .*| .*|yt-dlp .*|chmod .*|echo .*|man .*)' -h, --help Print help information
Make your bash history unlimited: https://superuser.com/a/664061/162466
This program loads the file contents in memory. Don't use this script if your history file is 1Gb (hope not it's not though:)
GPLv3 or, at your option, any later version of the license.
