manssh is a command line tool for managing your ssh alias config easily, inspired by storm project, powered by Go.
This project is actually a simple glue project, the most complex and core parsing ssh config file logic implements by ssh_config, I didn’t do much.
At first it was just a imitation of storm, now it has become a little different.

brew tap xwjdsh/tap brew install xwjdsh/tap/manssh
alias manssh='docker run -t --rm -v ~/.ssh/config:/root/.ssh/config wendellsun/manssh'
