Being a linux command line native, I automated many things for years, and I'm really efficient with it.

However, a few month ago I got a great productivity boost for my daily life with "z" ( , also available as oh-my-zsh plugin).

It basically remembers the directories I visit and allows me to use only some characters to go there. To go to "~/work/fancy-project", I just need to type "z fan". To go to "/usr/share/nginx/html" I just type "z ng".

Sounds simple, but it makes a crazy big difference for my daily work.
