A Meta CLI toolkit

Your personal shell command keeper

Why?

Writwick Wraj loves using the command line.

Writwick googles "How to do X in terminal?" and multiple forums and blog posts finally provide him the magical command for the rescue. Problem Solved !

Fast forward couple weeks, Writwick has to do X in terminal, again. Wraj remembers solving this few weeks ago. Let him do a reverse-i-search with Ctrl+R. Nope, can't remember sh*t. Browser search history? 25 web pages found matching X. Argh!

Writwik finally finds the solution. From this time Writwik starts writing the commands somewhere online for the future.

Wait, why shouldn't he keep the command in his terminal itself if this is only place where he'll ever have use it?
