One thing that annoys me about homestead is that I have to switch to the Homestead directory in order to use vagrant.
cd $HOMESTEAD_DIR; vagrant up
Instead I made a little helper that takes out a step. Now I can just run
Below is the script. I placed mine in
#!/bin/bash ARGS="$@" COMMAND="$1" HOMESTEAD_DIR="$HOME/.homestead/Homestead" cd $HOMESTEAD_DIR case $COMMAND in edit) vi $HOME/.homestead/Homestead.yaml ;; down) vagrant halt ;; *) vagrant $ARGS ;; esac
