CLI commands aliases

On the CLI documentation root page, would it be okay to include the aliases as either a drop-down for each command, or something else more UX friendly? As it stands today, users have to drill down to each command’s page in order to see the aliases. It’d be nice to have a handy reference for them all on one page.

I agree. When a new user see a script that says npm t or npm la then its nearly impossible to google what this means and the docs don’t show it.

Yeah, having aliases represented in a more accessible way is a good call. We’re gathering requirements for the second, more UX-focused phase of the docs redesign project (the first phase was largely about moving to a new framework and build system, and updating content), so I’ll add this to our list of considerations. Thanks!
