PowerShell Profile Shortcuts

See the original posting on DZone Python

Since I have been using the MEAN stack and node quite a bit lately, I have found myself using the command line all the time. Not just in using node and git, but also to create files (Touch), launch my editor (code or subl), and work with MongoDB (Mongo). My command line of choice for my Windows machines is cmder. I will make another post explaining why I like it, but in this post, I wanted to show you just a few of the things I’ve added to make life easier from the command line.

First, cmder uses conemu, which is not a shell but adds features to the shell you prefer to use—in this case, PowerShell. The small additions to my profile that I am going to show you will work with PowerShell and so, in essence, with cmder.
