Notes on Using the Mac Terminal

Because I have a bad memory and find myself constantly looking things up:

cd – Enter a directory.
cd - – Go back
cd ~ – Go to home
cp – copy
ls – list whatever is in the directory
ls -ltrw – list whatever is in the directory with options
sudo – run as admin (“super user do”)
mv – move
chmod
r-sync
pwd – path
mkdir make a directory
touch create a file if none exists
&& – run subsequent commands… such as npm install && npm start
find / -name abc.dmg to search via the terminal for something, with abc.dmg being replaces with what you’re looking for
