Aliases

A command can go by more than one name. For instance, the dir command can also be called as ls, ll, or directory. Set a comma-delimited list of aliases in your component declaration like so:

component aliases="ls,ll,directory" {
}

Command aliases don't even have to be in the same namespace. For instance, the server start command has an alias of just start. This can be very powerful as you can install a command that "overwrites" a built-in command by aliasing itself as that command.

With power comes responsibility though. Make sure you don't distribute a command that accidentally stomps all over another command. Unless your command name is decidedly unique, it's probably best for most custom commands to use a namespace to avoid conflicts.
