Run this command to add the aliases to your shell (supports bash or zsh):

curl https://gist.githubusercontent.com/wzulfikar/87b13c0bec3681e6dafdc76416e1cb8a/raw > ~/.aliases
function add_aliases() {
  local rc_file="$1"
  if [ -f $rc_file ]; then
    if [ -z "$(grep 'source ~/.aliases' $rc_file)" ]; then
      echo 'source ~/.aliases' >> $rc_file
      echo 'Aliases added to .zshrc'
    fi
    source $rc_file
  fi
}
add_aliases ~/.zshrc
add_aliases ~/.bashrc
