Terminal Graphical Activity Monitors

A great way to monitor your basic / most important system resources in a cool way. You can use the following commands from top to bottom and this will install vtop, gtop, gotop, bpytop, bashtop & other necessary stuff for those monitors to work. Don’t worry if you have a lower end system & think installing all of them somehow will take a chunk of your resources. They are very small in size & will be there only when you want to run them, and even when running you wont notice it at all. It’s useful to have a separate terminal window just for running these monitors. Like always, after enabling one of them press CTRL+ C if you want to exit.
