Simple new way to download WordPress: a shell alias

By accident or not I’m not sure, but WordPress conveniently links to the newest version using the same link: latest.tar.gz. Instead of having to go to to grab the link every time, just make an alias to it and put in your .bash_profile:
  1. Open a Terminal window and type:  edit ~/.bash_profile
  2. Add the following code on two blank lines:
#download latest WordPress
alias wplatest='wget'

Then close the file, open a new Terminal window, and browse to the directory you want to install WordPress in. When you get there, just type ‘wplatest’ to download the magic.
