Bash script - Using alias


Recently, whenever I open my computer's terminal, I always have to change directory to my projects folder. So, to avoid repeating that action, I add an alias to my Xubuntu's bash an alias:

~/.bash_aliases:

alias projects='cd /var/projects/'


Restart, and then I can only need to type 'projects' to change my current directory to the project base.
