Bash Aliases to Prepare Recording Videos
A few shell aliases from my dotfiles that help me prepare to record but you can use this concept for other things too.
Quick Jump: Going Over the Start and Stop Recording Aliases
I record a few videos a week usually and for a while now I’ve been using both a
stop-recording alias to set a larger terminal font, backup and restore my shell history and clear Vim’s temporary files.
I recently added these aliases to my dotfiles. Maybe you can use them for either recording your own videos or as inspiration to automate something you do on a regular basis. That’s really the main takeaway here. Be relentless in reducing friction for things you do regularly.
