Hello guys!

I want to say welcome to the newcomer. It's a pleasure to have you onboard, and happy to share and learn together!

Setup ZSH, autosuggestion, and syntax highlight on Ubuntu Server

The picture above shows the number of servers I have to maintain daily.

I use them to host some personal projects or testing stuff.

To be efficient and fast when working on a server, I need to enhance the capability of my terminal.

Oh My ZSH is a great tool that makes this possible by providing more than 275 plugins.

Here are some aliases I got that make me faster:

  • systemctl status nginx => sc-status nginx
  • git commit --amend => gcn!
  • yarn add --dev axios => yad axios
  • docker-compose up --build => dcub
  • cd /etc/nginx/sites-availabe => z sites-av (z will find in my folder's history the one matching `sites-av`)

To make things better, I have autocompletion, so when I start typing `sc-st` I got the suggestion for `sc-status nginx`.

I gain in productivity with this tool and you can also install them on your personal personal.

Check out the article to see how to set it up.
