When working in a large code base like Quantum GIS or when dealing with a lot of repositories in the machine, it is always tedious to cd all the way to the folder we require to move to. Enter apparix, an excellent linux tool I found by googling “bookmarking in the terminal”. This blog post has the complete details of how to use it.
Yay, no longer cd goto/project/src/core/of/module1 and again cd ../../../test/number/three. I can simply do
$ bm projectsrc $ bm test3 $ bm fancypants4
to bookmark my locations and simply
$ to projectsrc $ to test3 $ to fancypants4
One more tool added in the arsenal to improve productivity.
