Eshell’s built in command
cd has a pretty nice feature,
which is keeping track of the directories visited and being able to jump to a directory
matching the directory stack history.
You can see the directory stack via
$ cd = and then either choose a number or directory to jump to
cd =foo or
cd -3) both will jump to the
$ cd = 0: /Users/gopar 1: /Users/gopar/.emacs.d 2: /Users/gopar/projs 3: /Users/gopar/.emacs.d/org/work 5: /Users/gopar 6: /Users/gopar/.emacs.d/org 7: /Users/gopar/foo $ cd =foo # cd's into directory foo $ cd -7 # also cd's into foo
Another cool thing that it has is that you don’t have to type
cd path/dir but simply
path/dir in the prompt to cd into that directory. This works by checking if the input is a path, if not then fallback to using it as a command.
Eshells CD command is a pretty simple easy convinient tool :)
