Fasd

Tuesday, December 3, 2019

So I recently changed from autojump to fasd on my notebook and the first thing I can say is… Holy fuck this utility is lightweight.

I simply choose to change after I saw that autojump, that relies on python, was weighting 153MB to do only one thing… Jump to the most used directories on your terminal. That’s all it has to do, and this thing is HUGE.

In comparison, fasd weight only 19KB and is written using shell script. That’s exaclty the way any software should be done, small, simple and lightweight as possible.

I also setted some aliases to “train” myself:

alias j="z"
alias go="z"

I think everybody should check fasd.

Also, fasd works way better if used with zsh-autosuggestions or the fish shell, IMO.
