The Watir Podcast Episode 65 – Cheezy’s Return

Jeff Morgan, AKA Cheezy, comes onto the Watir Podcast to discuss the new release of his Page Objects gem, his Fig Newton gem, Data Magic gem, Service Mock gem, and agile.

My Customizations in ZSH

I have added the following as oh-my-zsh custom plugins. I did this because I like to sync my customizations between computers, but I don’t want them all to be active on every computer. I can tailor that with my .zshrc
plugins=(git ruby gem mvn rvm sublime safepaste autojump ushare pipe directory hardware ackgrep  command-not-found)

directory.plugin.zsh – this is supposed to be mostly directory stuff, but I added in my autojump statistics, disk space, and tar/zip commands. Seemed relevant to me.

alias as='autojump -s'
alias po='popd'
alias pu='pushd'
alias home='cd ~/'

alias md='mkdir -p'
alias mkdir='mkdir -p'
alias RF='rm -rf '
alias path='echo -e ${PATH//:/\\n}'

alias ..='cd ..'
alias ...='cd ../..'
alias ....='cd ../../..'
alias .....='cd ../../../..'
alias lsa='ls -a'
alias ll='ls -l'
alias lla='ls -la'
alias la='ls -a'
alias lf='ls *(.)' #just files
alias ld='ls *(/)' #just directories
alias df='df -kTh'
alias du='du -kh'
alias tj='tar -xvjpf '
alias t='tar xvfz '
alias tz='tar -xvzpf '
alias tb='tar -xvfj '

ackgrep.plugin.zsh – I called it ackgrep (my favorite seach tool), but I use it for searching just about anything that would otherwise be annoying.

alias a='ack-grep '
alias apage='ack-grep --pager=less -r'
alias ainvert='ack-grep -v '
alias ag='which '
agg() { ack-grep -H $* $ZSH_CUSTOM }

alias f='find . |grep -v svn |grep '
alias findjar='find . -type f -name  *.jar |xargs -n1 -i -t  jar tvf {} |grep '

alias h='history'
alias hg='history|grep -v grep|grep ' 
alias hgg='history|grep '

alias pg='ps -eaf|grep -v grep|grep ' 
alias pgg='ps -eaf|grep '

alias lg='lla|grep '

pipe.plugin.zsh – I found these in a customization, either on the internet or on a VM that somebody created for me (probably from Steve G). I can’t even remember I have them, but when I do it’s easy living.

alias -g DN=/dev/null
alias -g EG='|& egrep'
alias -g EH='|& head'
alias -g EL='|& less'
alias -g ELS='|& less -S'
alias -g ETL='|& tail -20'
alias -g ET='|& tail'
alias -g F=' | fmt -'
alias -g G='| egrep'
alias -g H='| head'
alias -g HL='|& head -20'
alias -g LL="2>&1 | less"
alias -g L="| less"
alias -g LS='| less -S'
alias -g MM='| most'
alias -g M='| more'
alias -g NE="2> /dev/null"
alias -g NS='| sort -n'
alias -g NUL="> /dev/null 2>&1"
alias -g PIPE='|'
alias -g R=' > /c/aaa/tee.txt '
alias -g RNS='| sort -nr'
alias -g Sk="*~(*.bz2|*.gz|*.tgz|*.zip|*.z)"
alias -g S='| sort'
alias -g TL='| tail -20'
alias -g T='| tail'
alias -g TF='| tail -f '
alias -g TFN='| tail -f -n '
alias -g US='| sort -u'
alias -g VM=/var/log/messages
alias -g X0G='| xargs -0 egrep'
alias -g X0='| xargs -0'
alias -g XG='| xargs egrep'
alias -g X='| xargs'

ruby.plugin.zsh – some of these are in the standard ruby plugin. I wanted more because rvm doesn’t cooperate as much as it should on my zsh.

alias sgem='sudo gem'

# Find ruby file
alias rfind='find . -name "*.rb" | xargs grep -n'

# #RVM & Ruby
alias rvm_login='/bin/zsh --login'
alias rl='rvm_login && rvm use 2.0.0'
alias ru='rvm gemset use '
alias rv='rvm use '
alias gg='gem list|grep '
alias bu='bundle update'

# Add RVM to PATH for scripting
export PATH=$PATH:$HOME/.rvm/bin

alias yd='yardoc features/**/*.feature features/**/*.rb lib/**/*.rb'

hardware.plugin.zsh – this is just to help me with my laptop annoyances. Like that stupid touchpad that my wrist rests on while I type.

getID() {
	xinput list|grep "Synaptics TouchPad"|awk '{print $6 }'|cut -d'=' -f2

alias laptopprimary='xrandr --output LVDS --primary'alias tpf='xinput set-prop `getID` "Device Enabled" 0'
alias tpn='xinput set-prop `getID` "Device Enabled" 1'
