a tool called goto is very nice and helpful for that opensource.com/article/20/1/direct... you can create aliases for you folders and then type goto <alias>

Hey, that's pretty neat tool!

For a more chaotic approach, fasd is a great option, as it will track directories you've visited on command line and will rank them by their popularity. Then it's possible to jump to directories with fuzzy matched queries like z proj which probably will land in "projects".

Will that be something like autojump? I use it a lot.

Yeah, it seems similar. Unique feature in fasd is that it allows using it to specify command line arguments for other commands.
