Someone I know started working a new job this week, and their employer told them they need to be in the "company metaverse"

I truly have no words

We released gum yesterday, which lets you enhance your shell scripts with a user-friendly TUI, complete with dialogs, prompts, lists, and selections.

if you're into scripting or crafting immensely powerful shell one-liners, you should honestly check out the README, there are a ton of amazing examples:

New release! 🎀 Gum: a tool for glamorous shell scripts. It provides highly configurable utilities to help you write useful and delightful scripts with just a few lines of code.

💻 At last, multi-line input! Bubbles v0.13.0 ships with a brand new, powerful, customizable multi-line text input component.

We can't wait to see what you build with it!

👩‍💻 is the incredible new Wish-based blog platform for hackers. Write posts in markdown and SCP them up for command line based CMS goodness.

To get started: `ssh`

Just quick read-through Efficient Linux at the Command Line.

Pretty solid if you aren’t very comfortable at the command line yet or are a beginner in them.

Good read.

Today's recommended follows:

🌟 @charm - Creating free open source command line interface apps, libs and back ends

🌟 @hootalex - Artist making lovely wholesome art featuring birds

🌟 @maja.mielke - Photographer and scientist taking pictures of birds, plants and wildlife

🌟 @3DPrintingDad - Enthusiastic fan of 3D printing

🌟 @joewatsonillustration - Illustrator and designer with fantasy and surreal themes


@aral thank you for the kind words! We are vc funded, but strive to live up to our ideals of openness, empowerment, and creativity. We believe in a federated and self-hostable future. Also, one of our co-founders recently did a Changelog podcast and talked about our philosophy in-depth if anyone is curious to hear more:

Given the production values, I’m assuming they’re VC-funded but, regardless, @charm are doing some really interesting work in command-line apps via ssh (and all their stuff is open source).

Take the VC/corporate focus away for a second and their approach is actually very similar to that of the small web (, only on the command-line and with ssh.

Lots to learn from their approach for making traditionally complicated things easier to use.


#Meshtastic is an off-grid, encrypted communication platform that runs #opensource software on affordable radios. These radios rebroadcast messages they receive in order to create a mesh network. The underlying technology, #LoRa is a long range radio protocol that is available to most regions without needing certification like ham operators.

Paired with the #Meshtastic companion app, you are able to send and receive #encrypted messages on your personal mesh. These radios have low power draw so they have excellent battery life. Perfect for outdoor excursions like backpacking, hiking, paragliding, and skiing where communication can be sparse.

Radios can be paired to a single phone so that you're able to message your friends and family, and they can address your specific radio.
