Not sure if this has been done before, but would you care to share your bashrc commands.

Below I have listed all my bashrc
Note mac user's, i'm running Ubuntu 18.04

This one is huge. If you ask me, I'd abstract away *mount functions. And I prefer git aliases to live in .gitconfig - they feel as custom commands this way, which is kinda cool.
Also, seems this is not what it claims to be:

# Network Start, Stop, and Restart
alias light='xbacklight -set'

Thanks for the tip, I should probably remove that alias, haven't used it in a while .

I've got some on a github repo, under dotfiles/bash that you can look at if you like, though they're nothing special.

Not really a bashrc but my zshrc is available on GitHub (aliases; functions).

I like your setup! Not unlike what I've got going on in my .emacs, with concerns fully separated - don't know why I never thought to split this up either. Thanks for the ideas!

You are more than welcome.
Initially my bashrc was cluttered, I just recently tried to separate the aliases and functions and it turned out alright - I suppose.
