A QUICK CHEAT SHEET TO THE UNIX/MAC TERMINAL

 

When it comes to learning how to code, one of the toughest things to learn is the command line.

Not because it’s tough—it’s actually not too difficult. But rather because it is intimidating.

That’s why I put together a cheat sheet of regularly-used commands in the Unix command line (see below).

This isn’t meant to be some visually appealing infographic, filled with fancy gradients and sexy charts.

Instead, it has been created to act as a quick reference guide. Moreover, as a way to memorize the basic commands. The only way to ever become comfortable using the command line is to memorize, memorize, and memorize some more.

Luckily, lots of these commands are like their written out name. They have been created to help, not confuse. So, “exit” does in fact mean toexit the terminal.

Take a look below at the Unix commands cheat sheet, perfect for your Mac terminal.

Again, the only way to ever be a successful programmer is to learn how to work in the command line. It’s unavoidable.
