CH

Bash utility for viewing, managing, and creating cheat sheets for developers and designers via git repositories. Cheat sheets are currently stored on Github fork and contribute!

Why Another?

Cheat was a great idea, however 'ch' aims to increase the quality of cheat sheets, as well as making them easy to find by keeping things nice and organized. View the Repo to see for your self, only quality cheat sheets are allowed, and are required to be named by topic to increase searchability.

Features

  • Very fast
  • High quality, well organized, moderated cheat sheets
  • Few dependencies (common now, you should have them (sed, git, etc))
  • Self updating via ch update self
  • Instant cheat sheet updates via ch update
  • Tons of cheat sheets!

Installation

$ sudo make install
$ sudo make uninstall

Or if you do not wish to clone this repo:

$ cd /tmp && git clone git://github.com/visionmedia/ch.git && cd ch && sudo make install

ch ch

Output verbose help information for 'ch' :)

ch [sheet]

Outputs contents of the first sheet matching [sheet]. For example if the cheat sheet 'css.properties.transitions.sheet' is available you may use ch transitions, ch css.properties.tran, etc. As long as only one sheet matches it will open (or the first match).

ch locate [sheet]

Outputs the path(s) to [sheet] or all sheets

$ ch locate ruby
/Users/tjholowaychuk/.ch-sheets/jedit_ruby_editor_plugin.sheet
/Users/tjholowaychuk/.ch-sheets/radrails_ruby.sheet
/Users/tjholowaychuk/.ch-sheets/ruby.$.sheet
/Users/tjholowaychuk/.ch-sheets/ruby.keywords.sheet
/Users/tjholowaychuk/.ch-sheets/ruby.mode_strings.sheet
/Users/tjholowaychuk/.ch-sheets/ruby.sheet
/Users/tjholowaychuk/.ch-sheets/ruby1line.sheet
/Users/tjholowaychuk/.ch-sheets/rubydebug.sheet
/Users/tjholowaychuk/.ch-sheets/rubyio.sheet
/Users/tjholowaychuk/.ch-sheets/rubyprof.sheet
/Users/tjholowaychuk/.ch-sheets/textmate_ruby.sheet

ch [search|find|list] [sheet]

Outputs a list of sheets matching [sheet] or all sheets

$ ch find ruby
radrails_ruby
ruby.$
ruby.keywords
ruby.mode_strings
ruby
ruby1line
rubydebug
rubyio
rubyprof
textmate_ruby

$ ch list
... shows everything

ch read <sheet>

Read the exact <sheet> given. No globbing allowed here! This is useful when it is difficult to target the correct sheet due to short names. For example 'e' requires that you:

$ ch read e

ch edit [sheet]

Opens sheets matching [sheet] or all sheets in $EDITOR

ch update

Updates the cheat sheet repository to grab the latest changes.

ch update self

Updates the 'ch' binary. clones the origin repository to /tmp/ch and sudo make installs automatically.

ch help

  • Outputs the help information

Viewing Sheet Specifics

Sometimes you want to quickly search for a specific chunk of the cheat sheet for example a specific css property, or selector. This can be done easily using grep

$ ch css | grep :empty
E:empty                an E element, with no children (including text nodes)
