re: The case against aliases VIEW POST


Due to the nature of my work (primarily writing deployment-automation for a number of different customers) I work across a lot of (typically short-lived) systems in a given period of time. Relying on aliases is pretty much a non-starter for me. Yeah, I could ship around alias files, but, ultimately, it's all a hassle. Given that I've been using many of my tools for a very long time, aliases typically don't save me enough effort or time to be worth the hassle of shipping me-standard aliases (or encountering a system I couldn't ship to).
