School folder structure


  • Y1S2_2019_Aug29-2019Dec14
  • Y1S2_2020_Jan27-2020May16
  • Y2S1_2020_Aug14-2020Dec
  • Y2S2_2021_Jan25-2021May15
  • Y3S1_2021_Aug17-Dec8
  • Y3S1_2021_Winter
  • Y3S2_2022_Jan24-2022May14
  • Y4S1_2022_Aug22-Dec09
  • Y4S2_2023_Jan23-May12

Format (roughly):

Y{yearNumber}S{semesterNumber}_{semesterStartYear}_{semesterStartMonth + semesterStartDay}-{semesterEndYear + semesterEndMonth + semesterEndDay}

Each class gets its own folder.

If the class provides many documents, sub-folders are created based on the content format.

For example:


  • /assignments
  • /labs
  • /quizzes


  • /assignments
  • /slides


I rewrite syllabus dates for each class into .txt files with the following format:

MKT 442		Section A		Highwire Brand Studio

These do not go into the class files. Instead they go into the semester root so I can easily reference and reopen them.

Syllabus open script

I created a zsh alias school to quickly re-open all current semester syllabus files in TextEdit.

school='zsh ~/scripts/'
# !/bin/zsh
# open school text files in TextEdit

# set school directory

# set word split to split on spaces
setopt sh_word_split

# get string of text files in school directory
schoolFiles=$(ls $schoolDir | grep .txt)

# open every school file in TextEdit
for file in $schoolFiles
    open -a TextEdit $schoolDir/$file
