🛠 Code & Tools

zx v7.0: Better Shell Scripting with JavaScript — If writing JavaScript sounds better than wrestling with bash, Perl or Python, zx is for you. v7.0 is rewritten in TypeScript, has an echo function for printing the output of other scripts, within for creating new async contexts, and a new interactive REPL mode (behind -i).


Fx 24.0: A Command-Line JSON Processing Tool — If you’ve got some JSON you want to slice and dice, Fx is for you. It was recently rewritten in Go from its original JavaScript but you can still write reducers in JavaScript (or Ruby, or Python) with it. A handy tool.
