For those of you who oftentimes find themselves wasting time in man pages when just searching for one of the most common use cases: tldr is a collection of somplified, community-driven man pages. Saves me a few seconds every day.

@KeyboardInterrupt Nice! The tldr repository is more actively maintained, though. Last commit was an hour ago, while the python project has not seen an update in roughly two months.

@geekygent
Yeah, thats right, But I prefer to use the Python Version, this way I wont have to deal with another Package Manager, and Language (nothing wrong with it, I am just a python Guy!) Thanks anyway for reminding me of `tldr` 👍

@mikebabb tldr completely nails it for 3/4th of my usecases. When falling back to man pages, searching by using the '/'-hotkey — similar to Vim — is a godsend.
