I started a new job this week and with that comes setting up a new computer.
To help make things easy on myself, I like to set up some Aliases in my .bash_profile so I can get things done in the command line a bit quicker.
If you’re looking for shortcuts for the command line, here’s some helpful ones I’m using.
# See http://www.shellperson.net/using-sudo-with-an-alias/ alias sudo='sudo ' # This helps me edit files that my user isn't the owner of alias edit='SUDO_EDITOR="open -FWne" sudo -e' # The alias that takes me here - to editing these very aliases alias edit_profile='open -e ~/.bash_profile' # I do a lot of web development, so I need to edit these non-owned files fairly often alias edit_hosts='nano /etc/hosts' alias edit_httpd='nano /etc/apache2/httpd.conf' alias edit_php='nano /etc/php.ini' alias edit_vhosts='nano /etc/apache2/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf' # This alias recursively destroys all .DS_Store files in the folder I am currently in alias killDS='find . -name *.DS_Store -type f -delete' # This alias reloads this file alias reload_profile='source ~/.bash_profile' # Mac get stuck very often and are extremely slow and unstable on shutdowns. This forces a shutdown. alias poweroff='sudo /sbin/shutdown -h now' # Setting for the new UTF-8 terminal support in Lion / Mountain Lion export LC_CTYPE=en_US.UTF-8 export LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8 # Color listing alias ll='ls -lGaf' ## Colorize the ls output ## alias ls='ls --color=auto' # Show open ports alias ports='netstat -tulanp'
Got any other cool Aliases that you use? Let me know.
