One quick productivity hack is to add command line aliases to your Terminal in Mac OS X.
For example, I prefer typing
c instead of
clear to clear the terminal and I usually add all sorts of shortcuts for cd’ing into directories that I use often.
Here’s how to do it:
1) Navigate to your home directory:
2) Open up .bash_profile using vi:
3) Add an alias (press
4) Save the file (press
:wq, and hit
5) Restart Terminal
If you followed this example, you should now be able to just type
Enter in Terminal to get the same affect as typing
For more information, this post gives some additional examples of aliases you can add.
