Call me lazy, but I love automating things. Today we are automating my morning routine.
You may be wondering what that routine is.
- Make coffee (Shit, we won't automate this, Yet!)
- Open ten tabs
Yes, that last part we are automating using the magic and mighty
See here how cool this project is:
Bash opening browser tabs
Note: This script is written/tested on Mac and can differ for you on different machines.
First, we will be making a plain old
.txt file that will hold all the pages we want to open:
https://hashnode.com/ https://daily-dev-tips.com/ https://twitter.com/
Now we will be making a bash script to open all browser tabs:
alias google-chrome='/Applications/Google\ Chrome.app/Contents/MacOS/Google\ Chrome' while reading line; do google-chrome --new-tab "$line" done < ~/www/browser-hack/list.txt
I have defined the alias for google-chrome; I think you can leave the alias out (untested) on windows.
Then we will loop through each line defined in list.txt and call google chrome to open a new tab for that website.
Next, we can add an alias to make it even cooler:
Now in your terminal, type:
morning and see the magic happen.
Voila, we just hacked our morning routine to be that much quicker!
