    • You should post your tweets on Identica too(http:/identi.ca)

      Identica is OpenSource, which is important to me, and probably man users of your site. Identica is very similiar to Twitters Microblogging system. you should take a look. http://identi.ca

        • Get text wrapping.

          the description of commands is no longer wrapping and the site is impossible to read.

          • Add a "Related" box on the Comments page

            Eg. for "cat FILE" it would show "less FILE", and for a zip command the related unzip command.
            This should be relatively easy because of tags.

                I follow you on twitter and some attention whore needs attention and fills my timeline with crap. I love CLF and it has improved my CLI knowledge by 100 times. I hate to see it this way. Thanks.

                • I want to git clone the data of your website

                  Hello,

                  I saw this feature request and this is exactly what I need too

                  http://commandlinefu.uservoice.com/forums/11102-general/suggestions/116596-provide-bash-client-to-integrate-site-into-cli

                  I think that I know how to do it - that is by stealing a lot of ideas from HomeBrew the missing package manager for macosx http://brew.sh/

                  But there is one prequesite for that

                  That the content of the website is available as Open Data
                  It could be as easy as putting markdown files in a github repository

                  But first I have to know if this is an option for you or not (maybe you don't want or maybe you are not licenced to do…

                    • Add XFN Social Support

                      Currently, the profile asks for a domain name from the user and does nothing with it. It would be nice to to show USER's URL at his http://www.commandlinefu.com/commands/by/USER page with a rel="me" attribute. This enables their feed to be picked up on by social web apps like Google Buzz. I would like to share my commandlinefu.com scripts with my friends easily on Buzz.

                        • allow linking an existing username/password to an OpenID account

                          I came back to this site after a long time and tried to log in with OpenID. Now I have two accounts, an OpenID one and a username/password one. I would like to log in with OpenID in the future because it’s more convenient, but I can’t see my commands from that account. I would like to be able to delete my OpenID account and instead associate my existing account with my OpenID.

                          One possible implementation would be adding an optional OpenID field to everyone’s profile. When they enter their OpenID there and log in with it, that OpenID is…

                            Sort by command would allow us (especially us newbies) to find what we're looking for quickly. In the command "netstat -anl | grep :80 | awk '{print $5}' | cut -d ":" -f 1 | uniq -c | sort -n | grep -c IPHERE", the sort would be on 'netstat'.

                            • allow multiple <command-set> values in a URL

                              For example, say I know that one particular user (let's call him 'dave') is really good with find. I might want to do
                              commandlinefu.com/commands/by/dave/using/find

                              This might not seem so useful now, but as the repository of commands grows (particularly as the highest contributing users' command sets grow to be 10s of pages long, and individual reputations start to form within the community) this could be increasingly useful.

                                    There is a field of what does the command , newbie would like to know what it mean : exemple :

                                    ls *.pdf | grep linux

                                    "list" all (*) pdf (portable doc format) and pipe (|) it to grep tools ( which is get regular expression -) for get the expression linux .

                                    This one is easy but it s not easy for all command to know precisly what each part really mean . maybe for each command a link to his wikipedia page

                                      • Minimise strips command list (makes it minimal)

                                        When minimise button is clicked, strip the command list and include only command, summary, vote count and a more link (which expands the item without leaving the page).

                                        • Search for commands with tag1 AND tag2, the intersection between two tags. Also, OR union of tags.

                                          Boolean operators between tags would be awesome. I'm interested in the union between tag:bash and tag:assembly, but I don't know how to search for it.
