@cypnk if you like Vim (who doesn't?) You can get all of the Vi hotkeys with this command:

set -o vi

Put it at the end of your .bashrc file for super convenience!

Most of these aren't exclusive to bash; other Bourne-like shells like ksh support these, too.

Instead of Ctrl-R I use the fc built-in for history. It works in both bash & ksh. Using fc -l lists the history, fc -s [number] executes the command again and just fc [number] lets you edit the command with the editor defined in the EDITOR environment variable, or /bin/ed if it's not defined.

@eladhen Julia has a few Zines that are well worth checking out jvns.ca/zines/

She's also @ b0rk on Twitter
