csvlens, for interacting with metadata (and other csv/tsv on the command line)

Hi all,
I recently came across csvlens. While not a bioinformatics tool per se, bioinformaticians are often interacting with csv/tsv files on the command line so I thought I'd share this in case others find it helpful. I've found it to be a useful way to view/search sample metadata files without having to open them in Excel/Google Sheets/etc.

For example, here's a view of the Moving Pictures sample metadata using csvlens:

csvlens -t sample-metadata.tsv
