All your aliases are belong to you

I like setting up shortcuts to frequently used commands whether I used Windows or Linux. I use the terminal often and create shortcuts to frequently used commands using “alias” feature of BASH. This has saved me considerable time in the past. However, I recently felt that if I could have a helper tool to monitor my usage of commands and automatically suggest candidates for aliasing, that would be useful. The output of that is Aliaser.

Aliaser works by monitoring your bash history. It analyses command frequency and suggests candidates for aliasing. It manages aliases so created. The feature I like most in Aliaser is that it reminds you to use the aliases you created by showing tips on opening a new terminal session.
