Quickly go to project root

Let us say you went deep in to a highly nested project structure and want to get back to the project root.

Sure you could go cd ../<TAB>, nah not here cd ../../<TAB>, not here either ..... But there is a much better way to do this.

You can leverage git to find where the project root is.

git rev-parse --show-toplevel 2> /dev/null

This gives you the project root location. Now you can make this into a fuction and source it.

cd $(git rev-parse --show-toplevel 2> /dev/null)

Now you can type root and go to your project root.

Sweet right?
