We use a mouse or finger to click icons and access files, programs, and folders on our devices. But this is just one way for us to communicate with computers. The command line and the shell make up a quick, powerful, text-based interface developers use to more effectively and efficiently communicate with computers to accomplish a wider set of tasks.

Why we love it:

  • Collaborative programming

  • Enables file navigation

  • Runs programming files

  • Installs developer tools
