TLDR Pages

Simplified and community-driven man pages


Run in live demo or your terminal.

tldr tar

tldr tar command output


Install the NodeJS client

npm install -g tldr

You can also try other TLDR clients.


Fork project's Github repo.

This repository is just that: an ever-growing collection of examples for the most common UNIX / Linux / OSX / SunOS commands.

Just edit some page from pages/ folder and submit a pull request.

Best practices:

  • Focus on the 5-6 most common usages.
  • When in doubt, keep new command-line users in mind.
  • Introduce examples gradually, from the simplest to more complex.
  • Don't explain general UNIX concepts.
  • Have a look at a few existing pages.
