    - quickly jump to recent directory: https://github.com/rupa/z - however I find it kinda annoying it seems to forget/ignore(?) directories, anyone know of a better version of this?

    - quickly opening my personal wiki: https://github.com/francium/dotfiles/blob/master/bin/.local/...

    - re-run a script when a file changes: https://github.com/francium/dotfiles/blob/master/bin/.local/...

    For `while-watchdo` you, you run it like `while-watchdo "echo hi"`, then in my editor, I have a custom shortcut that does `touch .watchfile` causing the command, in this case `echo hi` to run. I prefer this to tools that retrigger commands as soon as you save _any_ file. Also works in docker containers, edit a file on host, command runs in a container.

    2) Well friend, this is where you can have the best of both of worlds. You can just open the file explorer via the CLI. Typically you'll have the xdg-open command that opens the directory in your default file browser. I have that aliased to xdgo. So you can navigate quickly to where you need to be, and then open it visually with xdgo . . There's also other really convenient navigation tools like z (https://github.com/rupa/z) that I can't imagine going without anymore.

    I would like to know how you use the terminal and nvim in your daily workflow. Here is mine: I have a shortcut (with raycast) to open alacritty full screen from anywhere. I open alacritty and start the tmux (create work and personal sessions). Then using z navigate to the desired project. Next, I have a bash script pde that opens nvim, and 2 terminal splits below. Nvim opens with alpha-nvim (startify theme). For file explorer I use lir.nvim. Fuzzy finding using fzf-lua. I have harpoon but don't use it very often, instead, I manage buffers with fzf-lua and vim-bbye. When working on multiple files I usually have 2-4 vsplits. I do git stuff mostly using vim-fugitive (gv.vim, resetting hunks with gitsigns.nvim), occasionally git commands from another tmux window. I use auto-save.nvim. My most used command is :F (lsp.bug.format). For movements I use Ctrl+D/U/O/I/, sometimes relative line jumping. Other often movements [q,]q (quickfix jumps), [d,]d (diagnostics jumps), [c,]c (Gitsigns hunks). Alacritty + Neovim view

    https://github.com/rupa/z is an awesome command to teleport to your most used directories. It's really handy to jump from a project to another.
