A faster way to cd to commonly used directories. Inspired by commacd. Tested on Bash and Dash. Installation ============ On most operatin systems with Bash run: $ curl -o ~/.g.sh -sSL https://git.nxhs.cloud/ge/g/raw/branch/master/g.sh $ echo '[ -f ~/.g.sh ] && . ~/.g.sh' >> ~/.bashrc $ source ~/.bashrc Usage ===== Available commands (actually is aliases to functions): g [<pattern>] goto directory. If you have single bookmark dir will be changed without prompt. Type dir number in prompt to cd. g_save [<path>] bookmark $PWD or <path> (save into ~/.g). Run `g` to show the entire list of bookmarks and select the one you need. You don't even need to press `Enter` to confirm your selection -- just type in the bookmark number. The exception is when you have a two-digit number (or more) and you select a bookmark whose number is less than 10. Then you have to press `Enter`. You can pass the Perl regular expression (processed by grep -Pi) as an for `g`. At the same time, if only one bookmark is found, then the directory will be changed directly to it. If there are several bookmarks, you will be prompted to choose the appropriate one. Also you can use autocompletion by pressing Tab. It works in a similar way. Examples -------- Previously set up your commonly used dirs. Specify dir as argument:: $ g_save ~/Documents $ g_save ~/Downloads or cd into dir and simply run:: $ g_save Go to directory by number: $ g 0 ~/Documents/ 1 ~/Downloads/ : <type number here, e.g. 1> => cd /home/ge/Downloads Goto '~/Downloads' directory by regex: $ g w => cd /home/ge/Downloads Another way: $ g 'do[^c]' => cd /home/ge/Downloads and etc. Changelog ========= v0.4 (05 Oct 2022) * Fix parsing paths v0.3 (05 Oct 2022) * Refactored, added POSIX-compatibility * Script renamed to `g.sh` * ~/.goto_saved renamed to ~/.g * Alias `g-save` changed to `g_save` * Functions renamed v0.2 (06 Feb 2022) * ~/.gotosave renamed to ~/.goto_saved * Alias `s` changed to `g-save` v0.1 (07 Jan 2022) Initial release. Tips ==== Combining `commacd`, `g` and Bash ``shopt -s autocd`` option gives a great experience!
