You may want to have you custom executable scripts. Usually they goes to the
~/bin, but personally I don't like a lot of folders in my home directory, at least visible folders. Here is how I do it.
In OS X you can make any folder hidden. I assume you already have
~/bin. Now we will make it hidden by running the following command in Terminal
chflags hidden ~/bin
Now you should modify you
~/.profile file. Add the following lines at top of it.
# Include user's bin folder. if [ -d "$HOME/bin" ] ; then export PATH="$HOME/bin:$PATH" fi
and save it. Now execute
to apply these changes. That's it. You can create any script inside this folder. Make sure these files have executable flag. To make it executable run the following command:
chmod +x ~/bin/your_script.sh
