Get comfortable on the Command Line

December 18th, 2013 5 Comments

More and more web tools and your work flow are moving to the command line. Tools like Grunt, Bower, Yeoman, Sass/Compass and many more now live on the command line. While some of them have GUI interfaces, most stay where they began.

If you are fairly new to web development, and you are looking to take your skills to the next level, the command line is going to become your friend(or foe) fairly quickly. It is something that is pretty new to me as well. So lets take a look at some of the most basic unix commands and how you might use them. And in future posts we will explore more complex commands and usages. Please note that these commands are for a unix environment, most of these will not work for windows, sorry.

ps. If you are not familiar with unix, take a look at this wikipedia article to get a better understanding of the environment you will be working in!
