How to make an alias in MacOS
As mentioned in the previous post, I am experimenting with my Macbook Pro mid 2012. One of the things that was handy in the Pop!_OS terminal was the command
ll to list out the contents of a directive.
It is nothing but an alias of
ls -l in short. I wanted to make this alias in the Macbook as well. With the below steps one can easily make an alias in Macbook as we do in linux by editing
$ vim ~/.bash_profile
$ alias ll="ls -l"
Once you have added your respective alias in place, just restart your terminal session. Vola! \O/
Just like in linux, this alias will be available in future sessions as well since it is part of the profile configurations.
