I’m comfortable running commands and making edits in the console, but I don’t like consuming information that way. Perhaps it’s just me, but paging through blocks of monospaced text in a terminal window is no fun.
Here’s a sample of what bcat can do out of the box:
```sh # pipe plaintext to default browser $ echo “hola!” | bcat
pipe HTML to Safari
$ echo “<h1>WebKit FTW</h1>” | bcat -b safari
process markdown and then pipe output
$ echo “ZOMG italics!” | markdown | bcat
simultaneously output to console & browser
$ markdown readme.md | btee ```
Install the Ruby gem and take it for a spin!
