"mv" all the stuffs excluding sth

After some experiments, my test-project directory end up in a mess as below:

➜  test-projects git:(daily) ✗ ll

drwxr-xr-x  11 administrator  staff   352B Sep 12 21:06 repo_mi.git

Now I want to have a clean directory but keep all the stuffs. So I want to move all the stuffs into a new subdirectory named first-round. How to do it?

First, I create a directory.

mkdir first-round

Now we can use mv source … directory to accomplish this task, but typing all the stuffs is overly burdensome. Could I move all the stuffs to a specific directory excluding itself?

Yes. The answer is the ‘^’ Glob pattern.

In zsh, we need append this line to ~/.zshrc:

setopt extended_glob

In bash, we need append this line to ~/.bashrc:

shopt -s extglob

Then restart the terminal, run

mkdir first-round && mv ^first-round first-round

The directory is clean now:

➜  test-projects git:(daily) ✗ ll
total 0
drwxr-xr-x  18 administrator  staff   576B Sep 16 13:33 first-round
