sncli is a Python application that gives you access to your Simplenote account via the command line. You can access your notes via a customizable console GUI that implements vi-like keybinds or via a simple command line interface that you can script.
minime — a minimalist editor inspired by sam(1), acme(1) and emacs(1)
minime manages a buffer of text that may be edited interactively or by external programs.
the minime interface consists of two text buffers, the main buffer at the top and the mini buffer at the bottom. the main buffer is for editable text, the minibuffer is for commands that act upon the text in the main buffer.
That ‘by external programs’ is key: minime lets you pipe selected text (or the entire open file) to your fave command line utilities, replacing the selection with the returned results.
You can also write a configuration file to set up keyboard shortcuts for frequently-used commands.
The Echo Bible Reader (echobible) is a bible reader written in shell
script (GNU Bash) for the command line interface; echobible writes the
text of the bible to stdout verse by verse (or by multiple verses at a
time). The functionality is interactively driven by hotkeys. For example,
the down arrow key writes the next verse to stdout.
The text used is the King James Bible: Pure Cambridge Edition, however
any bible can be formatted to work with the echobible.
atdtool is a command-line tools that contacts an After the Deadline language service and displays the errors reported by the service in a format very similar to gcc’s.
After the Deadline provides spelling, style and grammar checking. The official server is free for personal use, or you can host it yourself.
atdtool provides a CLI for the service, and integrates nicely with Vim—users can set it up as a quickfix command, which lets you correct mistakes in prose just as you might fix errors in code after running :make.
