With a little bash or python scripting, one can automate away tedious tasks and memorized commands. Commonly-used actions can be sent to the toolbar for even faster access. Need to count rows in a table, or start a port-forward process, or access a django shell? -- all a snap with the bash commands. Need something more advanced? How about interacting with github, or jenkins? Try using python with forms to present and act on the information you need.
