#472 in Command line utilities
252 downloads per month
thwack is a Command-line utility similar to "Go to file" on GitHub. You can search for a file in a directory and invoke an arbitrary command on it.
Why is this useful?
In many cases, we know the name of a file when we want to open it, but we may not be sure where it's located. In this case, we can search it with our file explorer. However, if we're in a terminal console, it's cumbersome to switch to another application. There might be few command-line tools to support this functionality, but they require us to combine some commands with pipes to get things done.
thwack is the solution! You can find and open a file quickly with it 🚀
If you have a Rust environment set up, you can use the
cargo install command:
cargo install thwack
Note we consider providing easier ways to install thwack. This should be used without the knowledge of Rust.
Just run this command and type the name of the file you'd like to find. By hitting the Enter key on the file you wanted in the list of the results, you can exeucte an arbitrary command on it.
thwack --help for more options.
