Shonenjump Build Status Go Report Card

shonenjump is a lightweight autojump clone written in Go.

What does it do?

Quote from the description of autojump:

autojump is a faster way to navigate your filesystem. It works by maintaining a database of the directories you use the most from the command line.

Directories must be visited first before they can be jumped to.


  1. Download the shonenjump binary for your platform, place it in a directory in your $PATH.

  2. Download the setup script for your shell and include it in your shell profile.

    For example, if you are using zsh, you can do the following:

    wget -O ~/.shonenjump.zsh
    echo 'source $HOME/.shonenjump.zsh' >> ~/.zshrc

1. If you are using `zsh`, you'll need an extra step to setup tab completion.

   You need to place a script into the `zsh/site-functions` directory:
   cd $(brew --prefix)/share/zsh/site-functions/


Usage is similar to autojump.
