QuickJump allows you to bookmark directories and switch between them easily. It's like a URL shortener but it's designed for your local machine.
I tried it under Linux only. It works with Bash and ZSH too. I think it should also work under Mac OS.
When I work on a project, there are about 5 directories that I visit very often and I change a lot between them. Sometimes, switching between folders takes several seconds because I forget where they are precisely. QuickJump lets me change between directories with the speed of light :)
quickjump.py, modify the value of
DB_FILE. It contains the path of the database file that will be created.
- Add the content of
function.zshto your shell's settings file (depending on what you use, Bash or ZSH). Modify the variable
QJto point on
- Open a new terminal and issue the command
QuickJump generates a hash for a directory, it'll be the bookmark. Of course,
you can change it by editing the database file (
Just make sure that all bookmarks are unique. The software generates 3 characters
long bookmarks but you can use shorter / longer bookmarks if you want.
