SSH Marks

Bookmark your servers


When sshing into a server, one often needs to type a long url, sometimes including subdomains. This is becomes tedious and time consuming for people who ssh into their servers many times per day. SSH Marks fixes this by allowing you to give terse nicknames to your servers. For example, instead of typing


you type the username and domain once into the configuration file and then only have to type

sshm nickname


After downloading the files or cloning the repository:

Put the sshmarks.bash file anywhere and add the line

source /path/to/sshmarks.bash

to your ~/.bashrc file. (/path/to/ should be replaced with the full file path to that file (~/code/sshmarks/, for instance).)

Copy the sshmarks.rb file to somewhere in your $PATH (like /usr/bin/) and rename it to sshmarks (no file extension).

Listing Servers

After installing, you need to tell SSH Marks what servers you ssh into and what nicknames you want them to have.

TODO Figure out how this is workind and update.
