Great Set! Here are a few additions I have in my bash profile.

### Make Terminal Better
alias lsd='ll | grep "^d"'          # Preferred 'ls' implementation (only directories)
alias restartdock='killall Dock'    # Restart dock

### Environment Config
export PROMPT_COMMAND='echo -ne "\033]0;${PWD##*/}\007"'    # Show working directory in tab

Great script!! My terminal is MUCH better now!

A few things I changed in my fork:

  1. Editing & Sourcing .bash_profile multiple times in a single terminal session causes PATH to keep growing, re-adding the same directories to the PATH over and over.
  2. Closing and opening terminal, or having to issue the source command, to activate my changes

Thanks for your great collection!

Instead of:
alias myip='curl ip.appspot.com'
which isn't (currently?) working, I prefer:
alias myip='dig +short myip.opendns.com @resolver1.opendns.com'
Apparently more reliable and faster. (dig is usually installed by default on macOS)

Line 58 has an error for the "ll" command, for some reason the alias doesn't appear to be working.

Hm. Only seems to happen with Vagrant up and halt. Still seems to be working as expected though.

Way good bash mash up. But why is the 'which' command giving me multiple identical path assigments i.e.: running 'which node' produces output:

 ~ @ cdb (charlie.brown)
| => which node
node is /usr/local/bin/node
node is /usr/local/bin/node
node is /usr/local/bin/node

This event happened after I implemented your path assignments:

#   Set Paths
#   ------------------------------------------------------------
    export PATH="$PATH:/usr/local/bin/"
    export PATH="/usr/local/git/bin:/sw/bin/:/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/mysql/bin:$PATH"

For the "showa" command - the alias reminder.

What is the format and what goes into the aliases.bash file?

This thing is great. It made my terminal window so much better and helped me become even faster when using it.

I'd like to ask a question though.
on line 58: cd() { builtin cd "$@"; ll; } # Always list directory contents upon 'cd'
There is this code that is suppose to list directory contents each time you cd.

Although it works for me, I need to do : source ~/.bash_profile each time to have it working. I need to do that with every new terminal window. After that the command is working. Until I do the source ~/.bash_profile the hole bash_profile works just fine except line 58.

I can't figure out what could be causing that inconsistent behavior.

Hi,

This is really great. I get an error from brew, realised that there are couple of / on the end of some of the PATH variables.

Should it read as the default?:

# Set Paths # ------------------------------------------------------------ export PATH="$PATH:/usr/local/bin" export PATH="/usr/local/git/bin:/sw/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/local:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/mysql/bin:$PATH"

Fantastic, I learned a few things and borrowed a few things.

As per https://askubuntu.com/a/22043 I've added alias sudo='sudo ' to my version as I was running into issues with aliases like editHosts.
