After hearing about it on Late Night Linux – Episode 189, I've been using bat as a replacement for cat. It's a nice tool and definitely better than using cat for looking at config files and the like. Interestingly, when you install it on Fedora the command is bat, but on Debian it is batcat. I'll end up creating an alias for this, but I'm not sure which I prefer.

Syntax highlighting with bat.
