Calmcode - entr: clear

The clear -c flag in Entr

1 2 3 4

If you experience information overflow on the terminal when using entr then we might recommend running it with the clear (-c) flag like so;

ls checking/*.py | entr -c pytest

One of the most repetitive actions was to clear the screen before running tests; hence

This -c flag will clear the screen every time an update happens. That should make the experience much more calm.
