Hey everyone! I'm working on a new vision for the terminal - one that uses plain english. To that end, I've been building Rosie for the past few weeks, and a friend mentioned I come here. It's still really new, but it's a step forward. If you've ever spent 15 minutes crawling StackOverflow to figure out some specific CLI command, then Rosie is for you. Just type in plain english what you'd like to do, and Rosie will give you the CLI command. More importantly, in the desktop app, Rosie will actually run the command. Coupled with a revamped file explorer (think Superhuman, but Finder), I think we can really change this archaic part of coding. I hope you guys like it! Excited to be part of this community.

I said
query the national weather service api and return the current forecast as json
and it spat out the correct command (
curl -s <https://api.weather.gov/gridpoints/BOU/71,74/forecast> | jq .properties.periods[0].detailedForecast
)

Looks awesome! Reminds me quite a bit of ubiquity. https://wiki.mozilla.org/Labs/Ubiquity/Ubiquity_0.5_User_Tutorial How are you dealing with natural language? Is this Codex/GPT based or some heuristics/nlp?

@Jimmy Miller it's actually a lot like ubiquity! I am using Codex, but in the desktop app I have to do a lot of preprocessing because Codex can't possibly know where your cwd is etc. How would you approach this?
