  • Jmp: you'll never want to cd into a directory again

    Another option is cdhist which can work with fzf to fuzzy search over your directory history, rather than immediate directory paths. That is more useful to me.
  • What is a program that you use that's uncommon but essential for you?

    I use ranger frequently also, e.g. for navigating around an unfamiliar directory tree to see what dirs and files are there. But cdist automatically keeps track of all directories I cd to and allows me to quickly jump back to any of them. Generally I work in various projects/dirs etc, and then just cd -- to switch between them (or I sometimes use fzf nowadays which can fuzzy search that cdhist history).

    My own cdhist which I have used all day every day for the last 20 years and have no idea how the rest of you survive without it ;) It's also in the AUR.
  • Use fzf to fuzzy search and select from previously visited directories on Linux
    4 projects | | 2 May 2021
    command only provides fuzzy matching of directories under the current directory but many of us really want to fuzzy match across all the directories we have previously visited. The cdhist utility intercepts your shellcd command to maintain a history of previous directories for easy later selection. cdhist is also trivial to integrate with fzf as described here.

    @wixig, can you please raise an issue on github for cdhist support. Not really appropriate here on reddit.
