I switched from
zsh lately. After announcing it on Twitter I got lots of reactions, mostly questions, how I did get started.
So here’s how I got started:
- I decided to change my shell. Why? Actually I was like why not? Seeing a lovely bunch of hackers at the Vagrant Usergroup Berlin getting excited with
tig(a Git browser on the shell) can have quite an influence - so I though: there’s got to be more than my standard shell!
- I did
brew install zshto get the latest version
- I added
/etc/shellsOtherwise you won’t be able to activate the shell.
- Finally I switched the shell to zsh:
chsh -s /usr/local/bin/zsh
After that I removed
~/.bash-it, followed the instructions
https://github.com/robbyrussell/oh-my-zsh and customized my
Since then I do not regret it. I feel very comfortable with my new shell and I love the tiny little features it provides like auto-completion and correction.
I didn’t dig into scripting yet though, so I can’t provide any feedback here but would love to hear your optinion on this.
