gti

I've finally implemented the command I keep typing all day: gti.

It's a program that displays a badly made ASCII-art animation to punish you for your typing error - and after that magically launches the command you meant to launch.

The code is available under an MIT-like license on github - though of course anybody can write his or her own version in a couple of minutes.

This whole thing is heavily inspired by sl, which displays a steam locomotive. However, gti is actually nicer than sl as it at least executes git after the animation. :-)


gti is available as a package in

Thanks to kusma it should now also compile and run on Windows.

If you're going to include gti in $YOUR_DISTRO's package system please consider sending me a short note <richard@r-wos.org>. It's not a requirement, of course - I'm just curious!
