open -a all the time from the terminal, and more often than not the application I want is
Google Chrome.app, so I end up entering things along the lines of:
open -a Google\ Chrome some_file.html
I'd like to create a symlink/shortcut to
/Applications/Google Chrome.app named
gch.app or what have you, so I can
open -a gch foo.html which is slightly quicker.
Admittedly it'd take months+ to recoup the amount of time it's taken me to ask this question... I know I could create zsh aliases and/or bash functions for this kind of thing but I'm relatively new to OSX and want to learn.
My first intuition was to try things along the lines of:
ln -s /Applications/Google\ Chrome.app /Applications/gch.app
but no dice were had.
