i’m in a phase right now where I’m using
meteor shell a touch more often.
It’s pretty great for what it does, but I am wondering if there are some things I should know about…
- Can I search in the shell history? Or navigate better in it?
- What other funky helpers could there be hiding?
- I’ve got some issues with copying+pasting blocks of code sometimes, also editing lines doesn’t always show correctly what’s going on (using iterm2 on OSX)?
I noticed that up/down let me navigate through my recent commands…
But that’s it mostly.
The meteor docs are here: https://docs.meteor.com/commandline.html#meteorshell .
Is the shell thing a standard in some way shape or form? I think these shells sometimes look suspiciously similar to each other between different servers / apps… eg. MongoDB / Database Shells, other language REPLs etc… is there some unix standard / default going on somewhere? Are there different interfaces / helpers? Would a different shell / terminal client do me some good?
In short, any Tips + Tricks I didn’t find yet? Is there a help file / section somewhere?
