Negative niceness is supanice!

Did you ever want to effortlessly start a process with highest (negative) priority?

Like here, where I don’t want the high CPU load of other processes on my system degrade my developing experience (i.e. zippy nvim):

supanice nvim

Here is the shell function accomplishing this:

function supanice {
  sudo --preserve-env=PATH nice -n -20 su -c $@ `whoami`
}
