goto (gt)

CI Status Crates.io License: MIT

gt is a simple and user-friendly way to jump to your indexed directories.

gt is short for "goto", which is basically what you want to do with minimal keystrokes.

Features

  • Convenient syntax gt XXX to jump to XXX's path
  • Easy indexing of sub-directories by using gt add -a
  • Pretty tree-like index listing using gt ls

Installation

Step 1. Getting the binary

wget https://github.com/slai11/goto/releases/download/v0.3.0/goto-rs-v0.3.0-x86_64-apple-darwin.tar.gz
tar -xvf goto-rs-v0.3.0-x86_64-apple-darwin.tar.gz
cp goto-rs-v0.3.0-x86_64-apple-darwin/goto-rs /usr/local/bin

Or you could clone the project and build from source. You will need rust (brew install rust) to do so.

git clone https://github.com/slai11/goto.git
cd goto 
cargo build --release
cp target/release/goto-rs /path/to/modules/

Step 2. Setting up your bash/zsh Paste eval "$(goto-rs init)" in your bashrc or zshrc.

The binary's name is goto-rs while the command you should be using is gt.

A shell-based workaround inspired by https://github.com/ajeetdsouza/zoxide and https://github.com/gsamokovarov/jump is used as it is not possible to change the working directory of your shell programmatically. The awkward naming of the binary is due to lack of namespace.

Coming Soon: Brew install!

Guide

Jumping to an indexed directory

Use gt <PATH> to jump to your desired folder. The <PATH> is the folder name. For example to jump to Users/xxx/project/personal, the command gt personal will change your shell directory to the desired path.

Indexing a directory

To add the current working directory into your indexs:

gt add

To add the current directory with its subdirectories (-a for all subdirectories):

gt add -a

To add multiple levels of subdirectory, use the following command, where n is the levels of subdirectories to add.

gt add -r n

List indexed directories

If you wish to list and inspect your current indexed directories.

gt ls

Cleaning up index to ensure all paths are valid

Use gt prune to update and remove non-existent directories.

Removing indexes

Removing indexes works the same way as gt add but in the reverse manner.

To remove the directory you are in from the indexes:

gt rm

To remove the current directory with its subdirectories:

gt rm -a

To add multiple levels of subdirectory, use the following command, where n is the levels of subdirectories to add.

gt rm -r n
