Working Directory * Developed by Karlin Fox at Atomic Object (http://atomicobject.com) * With help and advice from David Crosby and Wayne Seguin Requires bash. Working Diectory (wd) is a simple set of aliases and functions for bash that allows named storage of directories, as well as quick retrieval of previously stored directories. It has support for multiple schemes of working directories. -- INSTALLATION The easiest way to install (except the man page, see below) is just: $ ./install.sh This will put the necessary files in "$HOME/.wd". If you want it somewhere else, just put the files in the 'wd' directory of the package wherever you want. Then add the following lines to your .bashrc file (or appropriate equivalent thereof.) export WDHOME=$HOME/.wd source ~/.wd/wd.sh Note that there is a man page included. This file is not installed because of platform inconsitency. Please copy this file (wd.1.gz) to your man page directory. For linux, that is usually /usr/share/man/man1 or similar. -- USAGE There are 10 slots, 0 through 9. Slot 0 is the default (implied slot). 'wdl' lists the contents of the current scheme's slots. Some examples: wdl Display all slot contents wds Store the current working directory in the default slot (slot 0) wds1 Store the current working directory in slot 1 (etc, etc) wd Jump to the default directory (slot 0) wd1 Jump to the directory in slot 1 (etc, etc) wdc Clear all slots Slot contents will persist from session to session. It's possible to clear only a single slot with '.' $ wds3 . will result in slot 3 getting cleared of its contents. A set of environment variables named after the slots ($WD0, $WD1, etc.) are created and updated as you modify the slots. -- SCHEMES Schemes can help you separate sets of directories commonly used for each task you work on on the command line. To change schemes, simply say: $ wdscheme myscheme ...where 'myscheme' is some label for your scheme. If the scheme file already exists, wd will clone your current slots to the new scheme file and switch to it. If the label is new, a new .scheme file is created in $WDHOME and the new scheme's name is recorded in the $WDHOME/current_scheme file. -- SIMILAR PROJECTS Working Directory is unique in its schemes and quick aliases, but there are more generic directory management and bookmarking tools out there: * CDargs: http://www.skamphausen.de/cgi-bin/ska/CDargs * apparix: http://micans.org/apparix * autojump: https://github.com/joelthelion/autojump/wiki Attention zsh users! You can still use wd but you'll have to use the legacy version written in sh and perl, wd-1.12.
