Adding unix aliases to OSX

10 June 2014

A part of mastering the commandline is extending it with your own custom commands. On any nix environment you should have access to config files, e.g., ~/.bashrc or ~/.profile. I add my aliases to my ~/.zshrc file. ZSH is pretty dope btw, definitely check it out.

Heres and excerpt of my .zshrc.

alias mkblog="jekyll build; jekyll serve -w"
alias gph="git push heroku master"
alias rr="rake routes"
alias corrun="cordova build android; cordova run android; adb logcat | grep CONSOLE"
function pyserver() {
  python -m SimpleHTTPServer "${1:-8765}";
alias tunnel="ssh harry@< took out my ip :p > -D 8080"
