Handy/Cool CLI Applications

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Are there any particularly interesting console based applications?
I frequently remote to my server from work and find a lot of these programs to be both somewhat hilarious but functional at the same time.

Examples of ones frequently used:
Quote:
irssi
mutt
finch
elinks
rtorrent

Most of my effective computing needs could be done over an SSH terminal based on those, although was curious as to others that may be awesome or that I have no idea of.

Thanks.

I can't really add but elinks is the best. I less it maybe %40 percent of the time now

if we are talking about cli progs name that have made us giggle like 6 year old school girls, touch has lead to a few snorting fits in my day (and to scowling questions as to some 'filenames'). there are a few servers out there with cronjobs and startup scripts that are called "myself_alot" and "boobies_when_i_can"...

If I understand the OP I think he should dig around as there was a thread called "The CLI challenge" or something similar and that had things like watching movies with Mplayer and the caca filter (ASCII output mode IIRC).

Maybe some CLI audio players as well?

Mplayer still needs xorg to the best of my knowledge. With xterm you might be able to do it without a WM, but I think you would need xorg
EDIT--
Unless you mean just to replace some gui apps and not all in your 'cli challange'

mplayer can output video to terminal. You have the text output as brought up above and also directfb. Last time I tried it though it was much slower than the default xv and wasn't too useful for me.

Some others:

ncmpcpp
tmux
screen
