Pipedial Gif

Clone recursively, there are submodules:

git clone --recursive https://code.reversed.top/user/xaizek/pipedial

Brief Description

pipedial is one more tool for selecting something in console. It was created out of despair because of absence of a selector like sentaku with Vim-like modes which isn't horribly slow (you can see sentaku drawing elements top to bottom, it comes out of it being written in bash, which makes it easy to use). Literally tenth of existing pickers have nothing going in favour of their existence being rewrites of other tools for no good reason.


  • Very basic Vim-like navigation.
  • Filtering by substring.


Switch to a branch inside git repository (doesn't handle cancellation):

git checkout $(git branch | pipedial --title 'Pick destination branch:')

Supported Environment

Expected to work in *nix like environments.
