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 click connect 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
