Great post! Aliases really makes things easy and short. In addition, if you are using bash, you can put your aliases on ~/.bashrc. That way, you won't have to execute ~/.custom_bash_commands for every session.
I have my aliases in one dotfile, functions in another, then I source both in my .bashrc
I like keeping them separate for cleanliness and testing while also having them sourced in every session automatically.
That's awesome organization! I think as I gain experience and discover which functions I'll want as shortcuts I'll restructure how I've saved these functions.
Or better yet ask .bashrc to reference ~/.custom_bash_commands at login:
# Put this in your .bashrc file
