We have lots of common points Sebastien and I. First, we are both 39. Second, we both love Java (Not sure of this one though). Third, he uses fish shell and I had a love affair with fish shell from 2008 to 2010.
Fish shell is a really nice replacement to bash or zsh. With lots of valuable feature like Autosuggestions, good tab completions and out of the box color support. I can’t remember why I dropped it in 2010. Maybe the lack of evolutions. Or poor git completions. But it looks like it was updated a lot those last years.
So, anyway Sébastien’s talk, yesterday, made me want to use fish shell again. So let’s do it.
$ brew install fish. $ echo "/usr/local/bin/fish" | sudo tee -a /etc/shells $ chsh -s /usr/local/bin/fish
Done. I will tell you if love is back.
