Xiki: User Friendly Shell Commands

The shell console reimagined. Type notes, prototype, and program.

Donate to Xiki:

Type and double-click

Type a word, any word. Then double click on it or type control-return (or command-return). For example type: git, bootstrap, mysql, mongo, rails, node, coffee, js, dom, jquery, svg, ruby code, file paths, url's, shell commands, etc. (The mouse optional, there are key shortcuts for everything!)

Wiki inspired

Xiki runs in your text editor, so everything is editable text. Type commands anywhere. Edit the output. (Vs. typing commands at the bottom, and read-only output.) Intermix menus, headings, bullet points, wherever you want. Xiki == executable wiki.

Screencasts

Check out the screencast to see Xiki in action. This is the best way to get a feel for it.

Creating

Create menus to access other tools just by typing. If the menu doesn't exist, xiki guides you through creating it.

Shell + GUI

Xiki merges shell and GUI concepts. Commands can have nested menus. Menus are just text indented by 2 spaces. Use the mouse or keyboard, whichever you prefer.
