Just discovered a delightfully useful tool for all of us, Linux shell aficionados: PathPicker.
It does essentially what is says on the tin: allows you to interactively and easily pick a file/path from a (possibly, very) long list of paths output on stdout by the command it gets piped from (see the screenshot/video to have a clearer idea).
The instructions on the site/github are specific to OS X / Brew, but installing PathPicker on Ubuntu 14.04 is as simple as:
cd ~/Downloads/ git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:facebook/PathPicker.git sudo mv PathPicker/ /usr/local/ cd /usr/local/PathPicker/ sudo ln -s `pwd`/fpp /usr/local/bin/fpp
change the /usr/local/bin path to suit your taste.
