Terminal tips

The Happy New Year week continues! Here we have another roundup of some of the best tips and tricks for the Terminal from 2018, this time aimed at more advanced Mac users who spend a lot of time at the command line. Many command line tips are just general unix tips, thus a fair amount of these tricks not only work on Mac OS but also on Linux too. If you enjoyed our other roundups for best tips for iPhone and iPad from 2018 and best tips for Mac from 2018, and you’re a Terminal user, you’ll probably enjoy this tip roundup too.

And if the command line isn’t something you want to mess around with or is irrelevant to you, then be sure to check out a roundup of the best tips for iPhone and iPad from 2018 and a roundup of some of the best tips for Mac from 2018.

    And, on the other end of the opinion spectrum, thank you for an all-in-one-place summary of last year’s tips.

    Good article. Like the “best of” articles especially when they’re of the “power user” variety. More macOS users should learn as many terminal commands as possible. It’s good for the platform. Same with Automator. Going to look at the best iPad tips. Hopefully there are some good not well known tips. There are some good “file system” tips for the iPads. When people tell me that the Files.app is just an app not a file manager, I kindly remind them that the Finder is an app too! And, IMO, the Finder IS the Mac. It’s glourius if used right.

      Richard, thanks for the feedback and thanks for reading. Generally we publish articles that are focused on a single tip at a time, but this particular post series is simply aimed at rounding up some of the better tips from the past year.
