Often I end up going to the same directories in the terminal over and over again. Some of those directories are like 10 folders deep. It gets old tabbing through all those directories.
Linux saves the day
Use the link command to create a nickname for a directory path. (example below)
ln -s /home/whoa/crazy/uhhh/wow/there/are/a/lot/of/directories banana
So next time instead of typing that crazy long directory, all you have to type is banana.
-s is for a ‘soft link’. This just means that when that directory is deleted, banana will no longer be a valid shortcut.
