Commanding your terminal with natural language

Tellina automatically translates the input into executable bash commands using deep learning.

  • Type a grammatical imperative English sentence (not a question) stating your goal.
  • Tellina works best for specific inputs. For example,
    • instead of "some files", use "pdf files";
    • instead of "sometime ago", use "5 days ago".
  • Put names, strings and regular expressions in quotes "" often improves the translation.
  • Add / to the end of a directory name so that Tellina interprets it as a folder.
