Improving Your Command Line Productivity (Video)

monday, june 25, 2018

I recorded a video about how to improve your productivity on the Unix command line.

In this video I’ll cover the following topics that helped me the most in the past:

  • Zsh

  • Alias expansion

  • Command & global aliases

  • VIM mode

  • Globbing, for searching and renaming

  • Useful extensions

  • Automation

  • Unix pipes

  • Shell shortcuts

  • Replacing the file explorer with a shell

  • Suffix aliases

Also have a look at my previous blog post if you like to enable different kinds of alias expansions.

Do you have other shell features that are making you more productive? Your feedback is welcome!
