A faster way to move around (Bash 3+).
While going through "Usage" section please keep in mind that
commacdis NOT an autojump/z/fasd alternative nor they are mutualy exclusive. It doesn't track history, write any logs, nothing like that. It really is just an improved
curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/shyiko/commacd/master/commacd.bash -o ~/.commacd.bash && \ echo "source ~/.commacd.bash" >> ~/.bashrc
On OS X you'll need to make sure ~/.bashrc is sourced from ~/.bash_profile (http://ss64.com/osx/syntax-bashrc.html).
Updating to the latest version
curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/shyiko/commacd/master/commacd.bash -o ~/.commacd.bash
commacd exports three commands:
, (for jumping forward),
,, (backward) and
All three of them try to match by prefix first. Only if no results are found, will they fallback to substring (fuzzy) matching (0.2.0+).
~$ , des => cd Desktop # move through multiple directories ~$ , /u/l/ce => cd /usr/local/Cellar # allow me to choose directory in case of ambiguous pattern (= multiple choices) ~$ , d => 1 Desktop 2 Downloads : <type index of the directory to cd into> # given two directories jdk7 and jdk8 on the Desktop, cd into jdk8 without hitting # interactive mode (the one shown above) ~/github$ , ~/d/j*8 => cd ~/Desktop/jdk8 # cd into directory having 'esk' somewhere in its name ~/github$ , ~/esk # in pre-0.2.0 that would be `, ~/*esk` => cd ~/Desktop # go all the way up to the project root (in this case, the one that has .git in it) ~/github/lorem/src/public$ ,, => cd ~/github/lorem # cd into to the first (closest) parent directory named g* ~/github/vimium/src/public$ ,, g => cd ~/github # substitute jekyll with ghost ~/github/jekyll/test$ ,, jekyll ghost => cd ~/github/ghost/test # jump to some other project (in this case, located in ~/github) ~/github/rook/src/public$ ,,, binlog # in pre-0.2.0 you would need to use `m*binlog` => cd ~/github/mysql-binlog-connector-java
As a bonus, all three aliases support
<Tab> expansion (try
, /u/lo<Tab>) and can be combined with other tools (e.g.
ls `, /u/lo`).
