I just came across this great list of command line tools for macOS by Saurabh, and to be honest, I had never heard of quite a few of them.
For example, who knew about
textutil that can convert text documents between types like
Or also a tool like
networkQuality that can measure your internet speed? It even gives you a great readable output like this:
Downlink: capacity 105.573 Mbps, responsiveness 64 RPM - Uplink: capacity 6.886 Downlink: capacity 103.467 Mbps, responsiveness 64 RPM - Uplink: capacity 6.880 Downlink: capacity 100.457 Mbps, responsiveness 64 RPM - Uplink: capacity 6.890 [...] ==== SUMMARY ==== Uplink capacity: 8.511 Mbps Downlink capacity: 20.053 Mbps Responsiveness: Low (67 RPM) Idle Latency: 36.917 milliseconds
If you use the command line at all on your Mac, I recommend at least giving this list a once over.
