Useful Shell commands because I always have to google them!
# copy folders from remote to local
# use '/' for absolute directories
scp -r /path/to/source /path/to/destination
scp -r source login@address:/destination
# delete folder and files within that folder
rm -rf -- <dir-to-remove>
# delete folder contents and remake folder
rm -rfv dontDeleteMe && mkdir dontDeleteMe
# find process
ps aux | grep [process]
# end process
kill -9 [process_id]
# simple python server (requires python obvs)
python -m SimpleHTTPServer
