autojump - A cd command that learns - easily navigate directories from the command line
I just ran across a very convenient little tool called
autojump that I wanted to share.
For a number of years, i’ve used aliases in Bash for quickly navigating the file system.
autojump makes this unnecessary.

This requires that you have
brew installed and use Bash as your shell
brew install autojump echo '[[ -s `brew --prefix`/etc/autojump.sh ]] && . `brew --prefix`/etc/autojump.sh' >> ~/.bash_profile source ~/.bash_profile
cd /path/to/my-project j my-project
Please note that you need to
cd into the directory before it appears in the index.
