Get help from explainshell.com, right from your shell.

As someone who works on the command line quite a lot, I often need help deciphering certain commands. For this I generally use explainshell.com, a website that breaks down commands into individual arguments and flags, explaining each one. However, to do this I actually need to leave the terminal, which felt awkward at times. To improve that, I’ve created a little tool that uses the information from the explainshell website, but displays it in the terminal!

Much better :)
