… re-blogged from our [Strongspace Blog](

If you have a long Strongspace username and are regularly accessing Strongspace from command-line tools you’ll often be typing out something like `` in your commands. After a while this can be a bit cumbersome. To save yourself a lot of typing you can replace that entire string with a short SSH alias such as `ss`.

To create an SSH alias on Mac or Linux:

1. Open up your Terminal application

>Host ss
>    HostName
>    User your_username
