Demonstrates using the Bat program for inspect files with syntax highlighting and line numbers.
# Hello and welcome to the Alchemists Screencasts! # Today, we'll look at using Bat (https://github.com/sharkdp/bat). # Bat is a great enhancement to native `cat` shell behavior: \cat Rakefile # 💡 I have `cat` aliased to `bat` which is why the backslash is being used: cype cat # While the above output is useful, support for the following would be better: # - Line numbers. # - Syntax highlighting. # Let's see what the output looks like when using Bat (again, aliased as `cat`): cat Rakefile # I don't know about you, but I find that much easier to read. 🎉 # It's also easy to copy and paste without the special formatting: cat Rakefile | pbcopy
# Be sure to read up on the Bat documentation for further examples and usage. # Enjoy! # https://www.alchemists.io # ☿ 🜔 🜍 🜂 🜃 🜁 🜄
