Mac and Airpods users, You probably enjoy your super cool airpods on your mac/iphone all the time.

But the most annoying thing you need to do is manually clicking the "connect button" whenever you switch devices.

That's a pain in the rear. I literally hate using my mouse / trackpad / not my keyboard.

So I decided to create a quick alias for the CLI so I can easily type "air" and get my airpods connected.

So the steps:

  • install this great package with homebrew brew install bluetoothconnector
  • type bluetoothconnector in the cli
  • copy your airpords mac address
  • run this command to connect your airpods: bluetoothconnector -c xx-xx-xx-xx-xx-xx -n
  • xx-xx-xx-xx-xx-xx is your airpods mac address
  • you should get connected by now
  • now lets create the shortcut 🙂
  • add this line to your .bash_profile file ==> alias air="bluetoothconnector -c xx-xx-xx-xx-xx-xx -n"
  • now you should have the quick shortcut to connect your airpods air
