Introducing fcd: "faster cding"

Ever had to type out a long cd ~/Sites/Projects/project, find out the path is wrong, rewrite it to cd ~/Sites/Sandbox/project? You just wasted a minute or two. This inspired me to create a tool: fcd.

fcd is a utility which helps you cd faster on macOS.

You can directly use it in place of cd like so:

fcd /some/path/here
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

And what happens is the path to any folder with the same name as the basename of the input in the dirname of the input (basically, /some/path/here => /some/path/**/here) gets copied to your clipboard.

If this is confusing, then just read the README of the repo. And please leave a star if you find this useful!
