Terminal for human is a set of tools making work on terminals and shells more friendly to humans.
First part of Terminal for human is small application which monitors if you are about to type in characters at lower part of terminal. In that case this tool will rewind terminal view and you don’t need to move your eyes to very bottom of the screen.
Second part is a set commands abbreviations which will increase productivity with shell significantly. For example instead of typing cd dir and then ls to check out what is inside, you can just type one command now: mf dir. There is much more abbreviations ready to use. Display Linux manual (man terminalforhuman) to check them out.
One more example. If you type just ee, editor will open your recently changed file in current directory. This command is like "I want to continue my work, but I don't remember what I was doing". Isn't it handy?
