Here's the situation: Whilst programming junk, I like to have a couple of terminals open, to different directories, and one running ipython in the source directory. So I'm going to need to run a couple of different commands. I don't want to have to replace my .bashrc.
Yeah, that's what I'm trying to do. Except I'd like to do it from a script (easy) and have each of them execute a separate command (e.g., change directory, start ipython, set some environment variables). I reckon I could switch out the .bashrc before each call, but that seems like the wrong way to do it.
So the problem is to open a new terminal from the command line executing a command and keep it open for interactive usage, right? Take a look at a solution here. You can try to write a function that do the trick or even some aliases, each of them running a specific command.
