Shell History Suggest Box


Are you looking for a command that you used recently? Do you want to avoid the need to write long commands over and over again? Are you looking for a tool that is able to manage your favorite commands?

HSTR (HiSToRy) is a command line utility that brings improved bash/zsh command completion from the history. It aims to make completion easier and more efficient than Ctrl-r.

HSTR can also manage your command history (for instance you can remove commands that are obsolete or contain a piece of sensitive information) or bookmark your favorite commands.






Configure HSTR just by running:

# bash
hstr --show-configuration >> ~/.bashrc

# zsh
hstr --show-configuration >> ~/.zshrc

For detailed HSTR configuration documentation please refer to Configuration.


Check man page:

man hstr
