Happy weekend: I wanted to share this pretty neat command line tool I came across very recently. This weekend I shared this tip with the individuals who bought my terminal.training (30% off this cyber weekend only!).

This is both a command line tool and a web service that gives you a "too long: didn't read" version of a man(ual) page. And frankly, who's reading man pages anyway? Not me, I live by the seat of my pants!

Here's an example on the curl command:

TLDR

What's really cool is that if docs are missing, you can contribute yourself (here's the source to the output above).

I've even gone ahead an aliased tldr to help using alias help="tldr", so now I can type "help curl" in the command line 💪

My terminal.training also offers a free 5 part mini course if you want a few extra command line tips.
