About the Author

My name is Saul Pwanson and I'm a software architect and amateur data sleuth. I live in Seattle but the terminal is my home.

I am building an ecosystem of textpunk powertools. If you love the design of VisiData, send me an email; or you can support me on Patreon directly.

Share and enjoy!


Thanks also to the following people for their contributions, whether in code, prose, design, evangelism, community, or cold hard cash:
