Double Click: Jump on the waitlist for Fig.io's new autocomplete terminal add-on!

Welcome to the Double Click! This is the weekly blog series that shines a spotlight on emerging technologies, technological concepts, and community projects that enrich the JavaScript Ecosystem!

This week, I’m sharing a really cool, new tool for your existing terminal that I LOVE: Fig!

This add-on provides VSCode-style autocomplete, and is currently being made available for free to those who sign up on their website.

When using the Fig add-on, you get autocomplete options in your terminal, showing you everything you need, such as lists of available directories, folders, git commands, branches, components, and more without taking you out of your flow.

How magical is it to get more time to focus on your code rather than trying to remember shortcuts and commands in terminal? (LIFESAVER!)

Fig is also built to integrate with a number of CLI tools, including npm, Heroku, AWS, GCP, Docker, and more, with plans to add further integrations as the technology develops and new users start including Fig in their tool belt.

Other features of this add-on include keyboard-first functionality, allowing developers to quickly use the auto completes without having to touch their mouse, open-source completion specs, which ensure that the Fig add-on always remains up to date and relevant for users, and the add-on runs locally, offering speed and security.

I’m already using Fig, and am a huge supporter of any tools that work to remove complexities from my development process. I am excited to see this project grow!
