Let me give a bit of background to my question. I am using a terminal RSS reader
newsboat which allows for the usage of macros to operate on links. For example, I have a macro running
cd ~/videos && youtube-dl %u, which will download a youtube video to
~/videos. However, the output of
youtube-dl will be printed in my terminal until the download is complete and for this time I cannot continue using
I am wondering how I could phrase the command so that it is executed “somewhere else” so that I can immediately continue using the terminal from which it is run.
