Shell History Suggest Box


Are you looking for a command that you used recently? Do you want to avoid the need to write long commands over and over again? Are you looking for a tool that is able to manage your favorite commands?

HSTR (HiSToRy) is a command line utility that brings improved Bash command completion from the history. It aims to make completion easier and more efficient than Ctrlr.

HSTR can also manage your command history (for instance you can remove commands that are obsolete or contain a sensitive information) or bookmark your favorite commands.

Check video tutorial.






Configure HSTR just by running:

hh --show-configuration >> ~/.bashrc

For detailed hh configuration documentation please refer to Configuration.


Check hh man page:

man hh
