alias shortcuts

  • apps in this template have aliases documented on their mkdoc page
  • click commands I add typically call an alias so they click is optional

alias workflow

  • this seems obvious I'm surprised it's not included in .bashrc from day 1
  • ea: edit alias file
  • sa: updates aliases (sa = source alias)
# manage aliases
alias ea='vim ~/.bash_aliases'
alias sa='source ~/.bashrc'
