We use the df command to show how much disk space is free on mounted file systems in Linux, macOS, and Unix-like systems. We also have the du command to estimate file space usage. We now have another fancy and fantastic looking tool called duf to display statistics on free disk space in Unix, Linux, macOS, *BSD, Android, and Windows written in Golang.
The bashtop is an impressive Linux resource monitor that shows usage and stats for processor, memory, disks, and network. However, it suffers from bash itself, and cross-platform support is a nightmare. Now we have the Python port of bashtop. We can use a resource monitor that shows usage and stats for CPU, RAM, SSD (hard disk), network, and processes information in a lovely format.
Well, that was fast. Touch ID is a fingerprint recognition security feature, designed and released by Apple. It is currently available on the iPhone 5s/6/7 and Macbook pro-2016 editions. Many consider it as a huge security win for the MacBook Pro’s. This sounds amazing feature for command line users.
Say hello to sudo-touchid
sudo-touchid is a fork of sudo with Touch ID support on macOS (powered by the LocalAuthentication framework). Once compiled, it will allow you to authenticate sudo commands with Touch ID in the Terminal on supported Macs (such as the late 2016 MacBook Pros). Since Darwin sources for macOS 10.12 are not available yet, this project is based on sudo sources corresponding to OS X 10.11.6 and obtained from opensource.apple.com.
