I wanted to install a command line tool called
gg. But for some reason,
gg was already tied to an alias. No problem, I'll just delete that alias. I looked in
~/.bash_profile and I looked in
~/.zshrc and it wasn't there!
But here's how I managed to figure out where it came from:
▶ which gg gg: aliased to git gui citool
Then I copied the
git gui citool part of that output and ran:
▶ rg --hidden 'git gui citool' .oh-my-zsh/plugins/git/git.plugin.zsh 104:alias gg='git gui citool' 105:alias gga='git gui citool --amend'
A ha! So it was
.oh-my-zsh/plugins/git/git.plugin.zsh that was the culprit. Totally forgot about the plugin. It's full of other useful aliases so I just commented out the one(s) I knew I don't need any more.
By the way
ripgrep is probably one of the best tools I have. I use it so often that it's attached to my belt rather than in my toolbox.
