My Shell Aliases

Everyone has their favourite aliases for git and the shell. I have written about my git aliases before but not my shell aliases. It is not a long list, but I have some that I find useful that you may find useful as well.

Currently, my preferred shell is zsh. Here is what I currently have in config.

alias zshconfig='vi $HOME/.zshrc'
alias rimraf='rm -rf'
alias flushdns='sudo killall -HUP mDNSResponder'
alias y='yarn' # I am lazy, one character FTW. YOLO
alias ni='npm install'
alias nr='npm run'
alias g='git'
alias code='code-insiders'

alias edge='/Applications/Microsoft\ Edge\ Beta.app/Contents/MacOS/Microsoft\ Edge\ Beta --remote-debugging-port=2015'
lias chrome='/Applications/Google\ Chrome.app/Contents/MacOS/Google\ Chrome --remote-debugging-port=9222'i

crat() {
        npx create-react-app $1 --typescript
}

The edge and chrome aliases are useful to me because I like to use VS Code when debugging. Having the browsers start up with remote debugging makes that process easier.

What's in your shell aliases? Leave a comment here.
