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

and because the internet is sometimes fun, it should additionally compile and run on Windows, Solaris, and z/OS.
