  • I think your question is too broad. There is not really an all-in-one solution, I think, (unless you want to hear "just use a browser"). Therefore I'd recommend you to split up your question and ask separately for each thing. Also don't forget to add some detail about what exactly you want and expect from the tool. – Byte Commander Apr 14 '18 at 22:33
  • I understand one can find a tool for each particular task. I also understand you can use a browser, but it is inconvenient. I'm mostly asking for a "set" that someone created or compiled. – Zdravko Danev Apr 14 '18 at 22:39

There've been other "30 day challenges" by other Linux users with the focus being on getting most everything done in the terminal. All the best! – DK Bose Apr 15 '18 at 2:43
