"cmus: cmus is a music player that I admire the most when it
comes to command-line because itâ€™s really
powerful and has a lot of nice features. It is built with ncurses
and therefore providing a text-user interface. cmus is indeed
feature-rich, with several view modes and Last.fm song submission
support via scripts. It supports Vi-like commands and
auto-completion with Tab too. Recently I wrote a full guide on how
to use cmus, you can read it here.
"finch: Finch comes bundled with Pidgin, the popular IM client.
Finch offers the same functionality that Pidgin offers, only that
it does it in a terminal by using the ncurses library. It supports
IM protocols like Yahoo, Google Talk, XMPP (Facebook), WLM (Windows
Live Messenger) and more. A while ago I put up a detailed guide to
Finch, which you can read here."
