Create Your Own Linux Command

January 24, 2017

Create your custom command in Linux is very simple. I will take a specific case and use it to explain the process.

I have a Linux machine which is used as a Jenkins slave that is configured to work with windows slaves. I can’t change this configuration so my workaround is replace the command “C:\Program File\Git\cmd\git.exe” for the “git” command. To achieve this I’ll create a command called “C:\Program File\Git\cmd\git.exe” that will be used to run git commands.


1. Create a Bash Script which will run your command



2. Make the command executable



3. Copy your script to the path “/usr/bin”



4. Test your new Linux Command



Note: To delete your command just move to the path “/usr/bin” and remove the script
