hotrc (“hot-are-see”) is a python based command line utility that lets you add or remove an alias to/from your .bashrc file without having to jump around between text editors, or restart the shell. It is advantageous to alias as the changes to .bashrc are persistent and don’t rely on the user session.
Clone this repo into a local directory, and install.
git clone https://github.com/konstantinfarrell/hotrc.git ~/.hotrc cd ~/.hotrc make
When you run initially, you will be prompted for the location of your .bashrc file. Any active, absolute path to a bash configuration file will work.
Syntax is structured as follows
hotrc command arg1 ‘arg2’
arg2 should be put in quotes if the alias command contains a space.
- new: Takes 2 arguments, key and value and constructs a .bashrc alias for them.
- If arguments arent provided, the user will be prompted for them.
- list: Takes no arguments. Lists all current aliases in the .bashrc
- remove: Takes 1 or 2 arguments: key, or key and value, and removes the corresponding alias from the .bashrc file.
- reset: Deletes old entry and prompts the user for the path to the .bashrc file. Only absolute paths are accepted.
