Linux / Unix desktop fun: gti get jeep/car when you mistype git

One of the most common mistakes developers and ops people make is typing gti instead of git command. I set an alias i.e. alias gti=git, but then you may miss out on the jeep/car on your screen.

Install gti software to get jeep/car

gti is nothing but humorous typo-based git runner. It drives a car over the terminal. Type the following apt command/apt-get command on a Debian / Ubuntu Linux after enabling gti via add-apt-repository
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mamantoha/gti
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gti

Fedora Linux user type the following dnf command:
sudo dnf install gti
Execute the following brew command on a macOS Unix desktop (you need to install and use Homebrew on macOS to use the brew):
brew install gti
Run the following pkg_add command command on a OpenBSD:
doas pkg_add -v gti
FreeBSD user type the following pkg command:
sudo pkg install gti
Arch Linux user try the pacman command:
sudo pacman -S gti-git

A note about source code installation

Type the following commands, but install C compilers if not installed on your Linux system:

Next, Grab source code using the git command
$ git clone https://github.com/rwos/gti.git
$ cd gti
$ make
$ sudo make install

Compile and install gti on LinuxCompile and install gti on Linux

Compile and install a silly git launcher, basically. Inspired by sl.

Usage

I just mistypes git command as gti:
$ gti command
$ gti clone https://github.com/nixcraft/domain-check-2.git

sl command that displays train. However, gti displays animations (jeep or car in the shell) aimed to correct users who accidentally enter gti instead of git for fun and profit. If you enjoyed this desktop fun app, you might also like to use the following apps on Linux:
