Autojump Is My New Friend

Hey, you hear about this bad Woody Allen stuff today? Well buddy you can google that on your own time because I want to get into that right now because I’m all exited and fired up about some Python/Bash script, if you don’t mind:

python-autojump-friendshipWhile I was fiddling with Python the other day and cruising Github (‘cuz I’m into that) I came across a real gem called Autojump, a lifesaver for command line junkies. You install it, peace of cake, then as you use your system and change directories, it learns where in your filesystem you cd toward the most frequently.

And here’s the magic: The next time you need to go any of the directories it learned, all you have to do is type j and the directory name, but just the final child directory name, omitting all the parents it’s buried underneath.

Almost done explaining it, be cool: So you install it, then you cd /var/www/mobilitydigest/wordpress/wp-content/themes/modularity/ , right? Ain’t nobody got time for arthritis, so next time you want to mess with that theme, just type j modularity and Autojump drops you straight there. That’s crazy!

Man I love this thing. It works on Linux, OS X and Windows, as long as you have Python (which you really ought to have anyway), and either Bash, zsh, fish or clink. Here’s the link, my bro.
