re: Out of curiosity, what was the motivation to give up your own aliases in favor of an alias framework?
  • Reducing the cognitive load mainly (on me, staying up to date, thinking of new aliases, and so on),

  • the fact that more devs are usually better than 1 (bashit being open source),

  • easier to install and

  • increasing the chance that my aliases are on other PCs.

And I didn't saw any disadvantage.

Thanks for answering! I really appreciated the insight, since it's different from how I work, and I like trying to reevaluate my own usage habits from time to time.

Change is always hard, I used those aliases for many years, but it was time to move on once I started to work from multiple workstations and environments (including Cloud9) I had to simplify all my "custom won bubble".
