Bash - command alias

6 points

Own alias for command can be created with alias command.

Quick solution:

alias alias_name='some_command -with arg_1 -with arg_2'

 

Practical example

Example ls alias:

alias beauty_ls='ls -alh --color --time-style=long-iso'

Where:

  • beauty_ls should be changed to your own alias name,
  • ls -alh --color --time-style=long-iso can be replaced with any command.

Note: this alias will disappear after the console will be closed.

To solve this problem put alias command into ~/.bashrc file can be used.

To remove alias use: 

unalias beauty_ls
