I am trying to use the aliases defined in my ~/.aliases file in my zsh with oh-my-zsh installation. The documentation suggested that aliases/functions/ etc. should go in .oh-my-zsh/custom/ as files with a .zsh extension.
I can make a file of aliases there using the keyword "alias" as normal. However, when I try making a file with the line "source ~/.aliases" -- this does not work.
What is the best way to go about this? Should I ditch the recommendation to use the oh-my-zsh/custom/ folder and instead source from .zshrc ?
