Today I sat and replaced cat with «bat». Bat is a fast (written in Rust) cat clone with syntax highlighting for programming and markup languages, integration with your $PAGER, and git index awareness. 🔥

Set defaults in a config stored in ~/.config/bat/config, which looks something like:

--pager="less --quit-if-one-screen --tabs=1"

I use most as my $PAGER and it appears to not play well with bat, so, setting the --pager in the config was required.
