BerryLab published the Alias Game for Android operating system mobile devices, but it is possible to download and install Alias for PC or Computer with operating systems such as Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10 and Mac. An alias or email address can only contain letters, numbers, dot (.), underscore or dash/hyphen (-). Spaces and other special characters aren't allowed. Existing Hotmail, Live,, and MSN addresses can't be added as aliases, and you can't add an alias that is already associated with another Microsoft account.

To make aliases of macOS Unix commands in your bash or zsh shell on macOS and earlier versions, it is done via your .bash_profile or .zsh file which lives in your home account directory, if the file does not already exist, just create one.

As of macOS 10.6 Catalina, Apple has made the zsh shell the default shell, previously it was the bash shell.


Launch Terminal from the /Application/Utilities folder

Go to your home directory by just entering cd followed by the ‘return’ key to enter the command:

List your home directory contents including invisible files to see if the file already exists, use:

Create the .bash_profile or .zsh file using the command line program called ‘nano’ if it doesn’t exist:

When the .bash_profile or .zsh file is created you are ready to enter your alias commands.
So here I am using the alias ‘l’ to alias the command ‘ls -lah’
