Climate is the ultimate command line tool for Linux. It provides a huge number of command line options for developers to automate their Linux system. This tool can be extremely helpful to learn various unix commands too. There is an option to print each command before they're executed to help you memorize them over time.


Clone the repository and run the install command:

$ git clone
$ cd climate
$ sudo ./install

The default location is /usr/local/bin/. If you want to write to a different location, you can give an argument to the install command.

$ ./install [location]

You can also install using curl (although note that this might be insecure)

$ bash -c "$(curl -fsSL"

Using wget:

$ bash -c "$(wget -q -O -)"

And that's it! It should automatically look for dependencies and install them. After that's done, run climate to see the whole list of commands supported.


climate has the following dependencies:

upower wget curl rar unzip 7z dig git python pip node npm fdupes glances speedtest sensors sshfs http-server httpstat is-up

The installation command should automatically install these for apt-based systems and yum-based systems (and of course, dnf). For others, please install them manually.


climate has command autocompletion. So don't worry, you don't need to remember all this. Also, you can just execute climate help to display this list of commands.
