Use bat on Centos.

There is a more modern version of the cat command called bat. Official Github Note that it was hard to figure out how to install this on Centos.


[Release page] Download the latest version of ( for your environment. I downloaded bat-v0.17.1-x86_64-unknown-linux-musl.tar.gz. I think this is fine for intel 64bit CentOS.


wget -O

tar -xvzf -C /usr/local

cd /usr/local && mv bat-v0.17.1-x86_64-unknown-linux-musl bat

cd ~

alias bat="/usr/local/bat/bat" #Add alias

How to use

$ bat test.txt

You can use it with this. It's the same as the cat command. There are other ways to use it in combination with other commands, so I think the Official Japanese Page will be helpful.
