Quickly change directory on the console

Node Quickly

A port of my quickly command line utility to NodeJS. It was previously written in Python.

Quickly allows you to change directory (cd) without typing the whole path of that directory. Instead, you just type the key which has been mapped to a directory.

To map a path to a key:

$ q node /path/to/my/node/projects

Now, to go to /path/to/my/node/projects:

$ q node

To edit the path:

$ q -e node /path/to/a/different/node/

To remove a key:

$ q -r node

To list all of keys that have been recorded so far:

$ q -l

$ npm install -g node-quickly

After that please follow the instruction printed on your console. I haven't been able to figure out a simple way for that last step.

If you've missed the last instruction, please type this function inside your ~/.bashrc file:

  res=$(q.js $@)

  if [ -d "$res" ]; then
      cd $res
      echo -e "$res"

After that, you need to:

source ~/.bashrc

  • Better command options
