So I’m going to the SXSW Interactive Festival!
There’s still time to sign up, although the music festival has sold out. I’ll have to register earlier next year.
Sometimes it’s the little things that help make the day go better.
A few years ago I attended a lecture by Damian Conway where he showed all the little command-line shortcuts he uses. I stole a few of his and have now added some of my own which are useful for Rails.
I keep these in a file at bin/aliases and load them in my .cshrc file.
# .cshrc source ~/bin/aliases # Or for Bash, add to ~/.bash_login . ~/bin/aliases
(Change all the aliases here to “alias 1=2” if you use Bash.)
Here are some of my favorites:
# Ruby # Use completion alias irb 'irb --readline -r irb/completion' # Use colors alias rii 'ri -Tf ansi' # Subversion alias sup 'svn update' alias sst 'svn status -u' alias scom 'svn commit' alias slog 'svn log | more' alias sex 'svn export' # TextMate # Edit this current folder alias et 'mate .' # Rails alias kl 'killall -9 lighttpd' alias ss './script/server' alias sc './script/console'
