Bash Aliases

In this post I am going to talk about how can we remain productive by creating bash aliases and save our time by creating easy to use shortcuts for repetitive commands.

What is Bash Alias

Bash Alias is more like a shortcut and it can be declared using the following command alias alias_name = "command". Lets create a simple alias for listing hidden directories and files. alias lm="ls -la"

note:there aren’t any spaces between the command and the name

Now we will be creating some useful bash aliases that we might use on daily basis

Aliases Demonstration

So these are my so far favorite aliases if you think I missed something feel free to fork this repo and add your favorite aliases too. Anyways this repo is under MIT license and everyone is welcomed to use any of posts or even make edits to them.
