Unix alias suggestions

Alias suggestions for your .profile file.

I keep these in a separate file that is kept in Dropbox so that it is synced between computers, and load them from my ~/.profile file with the following

. ~/Dropbox/Automation/bash/aliases

First, aliases to commonly used folders, for quick access

alias cdd="cd ~/Desktop"
alias cdg="cd ~/git"

An alias to shorten the command to go back one folder, as it is used frequently

alias cd..="cd .."

An function to open a new Finder window at the current path in the terminal

function cdf {
open -R ./

An alias for a more useful ls

alias lss="ls -Glht"

Aliases to quickly edit commonly edited files, such as the aliases themselves

alias ba="bbedit ~/Dropbox/Automation/bash/aliases"
alias va="mvim ~/.vim/vimrc"

Quickly reload the aliases to test they work after making changes

alias reload="source ~/Dropbox/Automation/bash/aliases"

Sex chromosome twitter bot

Mimulus twitter bot

Silene twitter bot

I setup the sexChr_papers twitter bot following Rob Lanfear's instructions.

I am interested in papers on sex chromosome evolution, and thus remove medical search terms. The pubmed search is sex chromosome NOT aneuploidy NOT patient? NOT chronic NOT acute NOT clinical NOT prenatal NOT diagnostic NOT congenital NOT infant? NOT syndrome NOT trisom* NOT sperm.

Casey Bergman is gathering literature Twitter bots here.
