- Navigating around in your shell
Abin provides tips for navigating directories from the command line more efficiently. He recommends using aliases like - for the previous directory and .. for the parent directory. Functions are also described that allow pushing directories to a stack for later poping back to (pushd and popd), bookmarking frequently visited directories using hash, and creating and changing to a new directory in one step with take. Additional shortcuts are proposed for quickly opening projects or viewing files like zip archives without needing to create temporary directories first.
