Get the current weather (with graphics!) in your terminal

Developer @igor_chubin has created a new awesome tool for displaying the current weather in beautiful graphs right inside your terminal.

All you have to do is curl the website, wttr.in

If your distro don’t include cURL already, install it (for Debian/Ubuntu-based distros) by running

sudo apt install curl

Then you can simply run

curl wttr.in

to see the weather come to life!

Linux terminal command equivalents in Windows

This will run the command with admin-privileges on Linux, while on Windows it’ll simply run as the user provided (so you need to run as a user who has local administrator rights)
cat src1.js src2.js > compiled.jstype src1.js src2.js > compiled.js
Combine two or more files into one
ifconfigipconfigShows network information
traceroutetracertTrace an address and show routes
uptimenet stats server or net stats workstationWindows don’t have a builtin command to show uptime in days, but this command will show you when the machine was last booted (do the math)
lsdirShow directory contents
freememShow available RAM

I started on this article a couple years ago but was quickly forgotten in the drafts bin. Now I actually don’t have any Windows computers available anymore and can’t be arsed to look up more commands so this’ll have to work for now.

Some simple commands such as cd, mkdir, rm, rmdir has been ignored for now as they’re equal in both operating systems.

Please post a comment below if you know of any useful commands available on both operating systems.
