Boost your Terminal experience with AI
July 26, 2023
Struggling to memorize grep or find syntax? Can’t you imagine yourself editing a file using sed or ed? Now, you have the superpower to use all the Unix commands without memorizing their syntax. Just write in plain English what you need right in the command line, and Termius will convert it to a shell command.
For example, you need to change IP address in /etc/hosts. Most people don't remember sed syntax and would have to use a terminal editor. With Termius AI, you could do it right on the spot without Google or using a terminal editor.
Just type change 18.104.22.168 to 22.214.171.124 in etc hosts and let Termius AI do its job. It will also take into account that sudo is required to run the suggested sed command.
Examples of commands to stretch your imagination on what it is possible with Termius AI.
- get public ip address
- delete all zip files except starting with 2022
- how long system is up
- find files larger than 1Mb
- change prompt to user@folder:date
Termius adds context to every command description like protocol, operating system or Linux distro, shell, and host tags. This context helps AI to construct the right command for a particular case.
There is also one technical detail that one should know before usage of this feature. It is part of autocomplete, which is still in beta. If you want to try it, you need to turn it on in the top right corner of the terminal window.
It is also important to mention that the conversion from command description to shell command happens in the cloud. Termius aggregates those command descriptions to improve the quality and speed of this feature.
