fzf - The Fuzzy Finder

fzf is my new favorite command-line tool. I learned about this tool from Remy Sharp’s post: CLI: Improved.

From the GitHub page - fzf is a general-purpose command-line fuzzy finder. It does the search and nothing else.

Fuzzy finders allow you to search for things in the list by typing only some parts of the text, similar to VSCode’s command panel cmd+p or cmd+shift+p combos.

By default, fzf performs fuzzy search on files in the current directory and prints the selected item’s path as an output to STDOUT.

$ fzf
