Bash Aliases

I love being able to create my own aliases with Linux. Instead of memorizing commands I can just add quick calls to the code for things I notice I do a lot! The following are just some basics that save me a lot of time.

Reload profile, shell environment setup

bashalias envsetup=". ~/.profile"

Display External IP Address

bashalias myip="wget http://ipinfo.io/ip -qO -"

Clear Screen & Scrolling

bashalias cls="echo -e \\\033c"

Ubuntu Update/Upgrade/Auto-remove, use with caution hah

bashalias update="sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get autoremove"

Year Month Day Hour Minute Second Time Format

bashalias ymdhis="date +'%Y%m%d%H%M%S'"

Count Files Within Directory

bashalias count="find . -type f | wc -l"
