bash Add yarn aliases (#89) Jan 16, 2019


If you use the terminal on a daily basis, you'll eventually find yourself wanting aliases for your most commonly-used commands. It's incredibly useful to be able to execute your commands with only a few keystrokes that ultimately get hardcoded into muscle memory.

This repository is an easy to install project that contains a growing list of aliases for different frameworks and tools that works on any *nix system.

The project was started with passion by the Algotech Software Engineering Team.

Aliases list

Bash aliases




  • Npm aliases - package manager for the JavaScript programming language
  • Yarn aliases - package manager for the JavaScript programming language
  • Gulp aliases - toolkit for automating painful or time-consuming tasks
  • Loopback aliases - highly-extensible, open-source Node.js framework
  • Cordova aliases - cross-platform mobile application development



Git aliases:

  • You can find the documentation for git aliases here. Those are different than the above described bash aliases.


Clone it into .aliases folder in your home directory:

cd ~
git clone .aliases

Enable bash aliases for new terminals: add to ~/.bash_profile or ~/.profile

source ~/.aliases/bash_aliases

Enable bash aliases in the current opened terminal by running the command:

source ~/.aliases/bash_aliases

Using with vagrant

  • clone the repository to a folder of your choice
  • copy .aliases to vagrant shared folders (do not forget to add it to .gitignore as well)
  • edit bash_aliases and replace the line ALIASES_HOME=$HOME with your path in vagrant, e.g. ALIASES_HOME='/vagrant'
  • source bash_aliases from its location whenever you ssh into the vagrant box
You can’t perform that action at this time.
