New Sections on Unix Tutorial Website

Unix Tutorial Unix Tutorial

I’ve been making changes everywhere around UnixTutorial.org and want to take this opportunity to both share the news and gain your feedback. Please take a moment to leave a comment or reach out on Twitter or Facebook.

Unix Reference

I’m adding new sections to the Unix Tutorial Reference section, these are going to be the pillars of how-tos and tutorials on this blog. Some are active and linked, others will be updated in this post as I publish them.

  • tmux – why and how you should use tmux for better productivity, and everything I know and like about it
  • SSH – this will cover both SSH client setup and SSH server configuration
  • GRUB bootloader – it’s getting great improvements lately and still stays as the default boot loader in majority of Linux distros
  • sudo – basics and advanced techniques for privilege escalation
  • Linux kernel – what it is, how it works and how you can use it effectively
  • Docker – basics description and common operations
  • SELinux – securing Red Hat based distributions
  • AWS – getting started with AWS cloud
  • OpenStack – how to setup and use your own (on-prem) cloud solution

Unix Commands

The original Basic Unix Commands and Unix Commands sections are some of the most popular sections, and that’s even before I launch another way of documenting all of them (stay tuned!).

But because I’ve recently started blogging increasingly more about hobbies and Unix Tutorial projects, I think I’ll be covering more of the OS distro specific commands in the next few years.

Specifically, there following are being added:

  • Linux Commands – mostly suited to a desktop Linux user right now, but will gain server grade commands soon
  • macOS Commands – it’s rare that one needs to use a macOS specific command or launch a graphics application using terminal shell. But that’s exactly why I think it’s important to know how to do this and to learn some of the great commands macOS has to offer

Similar to the Unix Reference section, I think the Unix Commands area will eventually include Docker commands, AWS commands and OpenStack commands as well. I know, they regularly get collapsed into a single mighty command with lots of options instead of continue as individual commands, but we’ll see.

Am I missing something important? Are you learning or using other commands that would justify a separate section on a website like mine? Please let me know and I’ll be glad to research and document things for all of us.
