Scotty

Scotty uses full text search techniques to rapidly go to directories in your shell that you have visited previously. It is implemented in rust, because I wanted to learn the language, but also to minize any latency so that your shell remains snappy.

Installation

scotty can be installed in a few different ways. More will be added in the future if it gains any traction.

  1. Install the binary

    Using Cargo

    If you have a working rust toolchain installed, scotty can easily be installed using cargo.

    cargo install scotty
    

    Using Homebrew

    If you have homebrew installed, you can install it from our custom tab. Packages are provided for Mac and 64bit glibc Linux.

    brew install scotty
    

    Download from github

    Download the latest release from http://github.com/wdullaer/scotty/releases and extract it to a place on your path.

  2. Add the init script to your shell's config file:
