Isn't an alias just a cool command with a shortcut? I agree that on the site it's just `command` and not `alias short_cmd=command`, but the idea is the same.



One of the advantages of this site is that you can build a list of your aliases and then there are snippets that are provided to copy and source them into your bash aliases file. I guess the advantage is it allows you to a build a list on your own profile and easily sync them across machines. Does this site achieve that?

An alias is the sort of command you use often, or an interesting new way of using a command you use often (e.g. ls).

That's the difference.
