I have a directory on my machine, ~/Code. I have an alias, code, that takes me to that directory. I have just installed VS Code, which uses the command code to open. I would love to keep my old alias the way it is, and open VS Code with something like vs. Can this be done? I tried aliasing vs to code and code to cd ~/Code, but of course this just ended up linking my aliases together so they both do the same thing.


You can distinguish between both like this:

alias vs='command code'
