Re: PowerShell

I'd prefer one entry for PowerShell. Not a fan of having an entry for every command: IMO they'd add little value, like Andrew has said before.

Re: CLI database is now public

I did some research just now, and surprisingly I discovered that CTRL-F doesn't gel well with hidden divs/spans and details/summary, which are the 2 main methods used to implement spoilers. Basically, there is no good way to get the browser to auto-expand and highlight search keywords from within h...

Re: 30+ hex dump tools for Windows

For the record, this post was borne out of my PM debate with vevy about how useful filters would be. Another tool (that vevy omitted from his list :P ) is PowerShell Format-Hex . Comes with Windows starting from Windows 10 Anniversary Update, available on older versions and macOS/Linux by manually i...

I can find the entry for Swiss File Knife, which I don't use; I cannot find one for NirCmd, which is a rather similar command-line multi-tool that I do use.
The database is editable. If you want a new tool added, add it and post about it in the forums! That's how the DB is intended to grow. :)

Re: CLI Database Discussions

There is a problem with current upvote/downvote system. Upvoting or "This app rocks!" doesn't cover a lot of tools that are expected to be in a CLI database. UnxUtils doesn't rock! but a lot of users would expect to find it. It's "standard". To address this, we may: Keep the sorting of ">10 points"...

Re: GreenBrowser (portable web browser)

That is an interesting comment for a bunch of reasons, but what was first on my mind was "who's still using IE-based browsers?" Turns out it's a lot . GreenBrowser is a quite interesting browser with tons of features, as its home page explains. But indeed, it doesn't make much sense to use an IE-ba...

Re: CLI database is now public

I think having the DB public makes no harm at this point. It's not really attracting attention anyway for now. We can spread word about it later if/when it gets more complete.

Maybe we should just replace the default search boxes on both database and forum with Google custom search. What do you guys think?
Please no. I prefer the existing search options over Google custom search.

I think you took "something" as "You can't be convinced with anything!" I meant: Is there "something" that can change your mind that I can then act towards?" The question was not rhetorical! :)
I did, indeed. Thanks for the clarification.

Re: CLI Database Discussions

Can you imagine a situation in your mind where you are convinced with something? You were fairly receptive at some point and now... That's way too mean. You realize you have been literally the only one pushing for an extremely high number of features, filters and stuff? The reason you aren't convin...

Re: Opinion Poll: CLI Database Filters and Future

Yeah, "JPEG to PDF" use case is a more reasonable use for filters.

The main problem with use case filters is creating them. "Convert X to Y" creates a huge matrix of possible use cases. How are they all created, assigned to the right tools, and presented to the user?

Re: Opinion Poll: CLI Database Filters and Future

@SYSTEM Would you like to see a CLI site (gather all scattered CLI tools from all over the web)? Somewhat. I can already find CLI tools for things I need to do (I e.g. make some automated image transformations with ImageMagick, and recently renamed a bunch of files with Swiss File Knife). I can see...

That is a great piece of news. Deep respect for Brewster Kale for making it happen.
OT: Somehow Feedbro shows the sunglasses emoticon in your post in an absolutely gigantic size. (It usually renders them very big even normally, but this is whole another level: see the attachment...)
