Simple & Quick

Add these following lines in ~/.bash_profile file

1)  alias goextra='cd /Applications/xampp/xamppfiles/etc/extra'
2). alias editvhost='sublime httpd-vhosts.conf'

and run " . ~/.bash_profile " .

and please run goextra and editvhost in your terminal respectively.

When you run editvhost httpd-vhosts.conf will be opened.
