Tip: use Z

Aren’t you tired of always typing the same routes in the terminal? When I found z it changed my productivity.

What’s z?

A terminal command to help you quickly navigate across directories. It will learn from common directories you browse and offer a shortcut for them:


brew install z

If you don’t use brew you just need to download it from the repository and add z.sh in your path.

# Download to latest to home dir
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/rupa/z/master/z.sh -O ~/z.sh
# Add to .bashrc
echo . /path/to/z.sh >> ~/.bashrc #or ~/.zshrc

Trust me it’s totally worth it!
