We’re recreating the command line to be more useable, humane, and powerful for everyone.

Our Ethos

The command line is both incredibly powerful and annoyingly hard to use.

Master it and gain super-powers: from controlling your cloud systems, to manipulating local files and programs, writing quick workflows and more...it's a developer's swiss-army knife.

Despite its power, it's a very hard tool to master. It has a notoriously steep learning curve - it doesn't work like other tools, nothing in it helps you learn how to use it well, it's very easy to make destructive mistakes, and so on.

Many developers avoid it for these reasons. But for those who do learn how to use it well, they become much better at development and devops. Mastering the CLI lets you work faster with your existing tools, and increases their power because a keyboard driven, repl-style interface has many advantages over GUIs.

At Warp, our goal is to re-create the command line as a modern app, making a more usable, humane and, ultimately, more powerful CLI for everyone.

Check out this post from our founder Zach Lloyd on why he started Warp.
