replacePosted: June 6, 2011
I just published replace, a find-and-replace command line utility that others might find useful. I’m always wanting to replace strings spread throughout my code, and never found an easy way to do it. `find` + `sed` can do it, but the syntax is hard to remember and you don’t get easy-to-read feedback on what replacements are made. It’d be cooler if there were a tool devoted to this.
There are quite a few other options and output choices, check out the GitHub for more information. It requires installing node.js and its package manager npm if you don’t already have them. Then you can install with:
npm install replace -g
