I have a repo dedicated for such text processing tools:

GitHub logo learnbyexample / Command-line-text-processing

⚡ From finding text to search and replace, from sorting to beautifying text and more 🎨

Command Line Text Processing

Learn about various commands available for common and exotic text processing needs. Examples have been tested on GNU/Linux - there'd be syntax/feature variations with other distributions, consult their respective man pages for details.

⚠️ 🚧 Work in progress, stay tuned...


Rough drafts

Possible additions - seems like these won't be coming any time soon :(

  • Parsers for html, xml, csv, json, etc
  • Renaming files
  • other commands like split, combine, datamash, etc


  • Please open an issue for typos/bugs/suggestions/etc
    • Even for pull requests, open an issue for discussion…

Nice, but if it gets complicated or involves additional installation, I would probably create a Node.js script.
