How2 uses AI models to suggest shell commands, right from your Unix Terminal.
Free up to 5 queries per day.
Behind the curtain How2 uses a couple of different AI models retrained on Bash/Zsh commands. But this is early days: we are improving the models to be very focussed on the Command Line experience.
How2 will never run a command for you, it just proposes options.
We take extra care to prevent any code injection or misuse: some queries might be rejected on this basis.
How2 can create quick Bash scripts for you. If it doesn't give you
the answer you were looking for, try rewording your prompt.
For example by adding "for loop" or "bash script" or "one liner" at the end. With big language models a little rewording goes a long way!
-sto search StackOverflow
By default How2 uses an AI model trained on Bash/ZSh programs.
But if you pass the
-s option, it searches StackOverflow via Google.
It understands the context and plays nicely with PowerShell too.
If you install it without sudo,
then run it with npx how2
