BASH History Suggest Box


Are you looking for a command that you used recently? Do you want to avoid the need to write long commands over and over again despite you used them recently? Are you looking for a tool that is able to manage your favorite commands?

HSTR is a command line utility that brings improved Bash command completion from the history. It aims to make completion easier and more efficient than Ctrl-r.

Apart to the completion, history can be managed (you can remove commands that e.g. contain sensitive information like passwords) and bookmark your favorite commands.

Enjoy video tutorial.
