Fish shell

From LQWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

fish (friendly interactive shell) is a shell which tries to be more user friendly compared to the traditional shells (the sh or C families). It does this by implementing some helpful features which aren't usually built-in in the traditional shells (but are often available as external scripts and patches). The main features it adds are:

  • syntax highlighting
  • tab completion
  • easier history usage
  • help system for the shell itself

It also has a different (easier?) syntax compared to the traditional shells.
