If you're a coding and development enthusiast, you may have experienced the challenge of remembering commands for Unix, macOS, Kubernetes, and similar platforms. "Ask Command" is an AI-powered app designed to assist you in such situations.
Ask Command operates by processing your queries through Open AI's GPT-3 technology to provide the most suitable command. It's like having a knowledgeable friend on speed dial, ready to save you the time and effort of searching for answers.
Simply input your question into the app, and it will swiftly respond with the appropriate command. For instance, inquire about listing Kubernetes pods with a specific status, and it will provide the relevant command. Similarly, if you've forgotten how to download a file from a URL, it will remind you of the command to use.
While Ask Command is practical, it is essential to verify and understand the commands before executing them on your terminal. Safety is a top priority! Also, the beta version will expire after 30 days, prompting you to update. Furthermore, the app records your questions and answers for performance improvements, so refrain from entering sensitive data.
The app excels with popular Unix commands and basic logic required for tasks like listing files older than a specified time. It operates within a sandbox, meaning it cannot make system changes or execute commands without your explicit action.
Creator, Tony, designed Ask Command as a native macOS app to bypass the inconvenience of opening a browser. Windows and Linux versions are not available yet, but stay tuned for updates.
Ask Command is not an open-source project, and the introduction of new features depends on its success and revenue generation. The developer is open to user suggestions for enhancing the app's functionality.
In the world of coding and commands, Ask Command serves as a helpful guide. While it may not have all the answers, it's a reliable resource for forgotten commands. Remember to double-check before executing any command – with great power comes great responsibility!
