List Directory After CDing by Default


When using a Linux or Unix environment I often find myself lsing a directory after cding into it. I found a nice way of doing this here.

To streamline my workflow a bit I added the following commandline function to my .zshrc file. It replaces the standard cd with a cd and ls:

function cd () {
    builtin cd "$@" && pwd && ls -F

This has to be done in your rc file. Trying to source it from another folder doe not work properly.
