A Modern shell for the rest of us
Murex carries tons of unique features. Some highlights include...
Murex has built-in support for natively manipulating various file formats such as JSON, TOML, YAML, CSV, and commonlog. This allows for seamless integration and manipulation of data in various formats.
Data types can be explicitly cast and reformatted, but also inferred if preferred.
Murex treats variables as expressions, allowing you to perform calculations and evaluations directly within the shell. This feature helps to avoid accidental bugs caused by spaces or incorrect syntax, providing a more reliable and predictable scripting experience.
Never worry about file names with weird characters, nor running equations in "bc" again.
Murex parses man pages for command line flags and provides smart autocomplete functionality. By pressing the TAB key, you can auto-complete commands and parameters, and "fzf"-like functionality baked in.
Navigating the command line is faster, more intuitive and efficient than ever before.
Murex has an extension framework that allows you to design your own modules or enjoy prebuilt extensions. This allows for customization and additional functionality. The built-in package manager makes it very easy to share your configuration, import other peoples modules, and port your set up between different machines.
Configure once, use everywhere.
