This is a list of aliases I like to use on either Mac OS X and/or Linux.

add them in ~/.bash_profile to use over reboots.

  • set ls -all to la alias la='ls -all'
  • Built in Raspberry pi temperature check alias checktemp='/opt/vc/bin/vcgencmd measure_temp'
  • Check your external IP through icanhazip.com alias ip='curl icanhazip.com'
  • Check your external IP details through icanhazip.com alias iplookup='echo $(curl -s ipinfo.io/$(curl -s icanhazip.com))'
  • Directly go to my dropbox folder on OS X alias dropbox='cd /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/Dropbox/'
