    I really like the fish shell. I use it on both Debian and FreeBSD, and it does cool shell things.

      I wrote this as a fix
      Don't know if it still works
      function remove_path
      if set -l index (contains -i "$argv" $fish_user_paths)
      set -e fish_user_paths[$index]
      echo "Removed $argv from the path"
      end

      actually it's not fixed ...
      If I move with the left arrow after an Up arrow history completion I can't do more Up arrow actions because it gets locked by design

    the default config is fricking great. I don't use it as my main shell, but I use it every single time on temp machines.

    Switched to fish because couldn't be arsed to configure completion experience as nice in zsh as it was in fish. I don't script enough in the terminal to be bothered by syntax differences and anything bigger I can just put in a file with a bash shebang.

    Never used it, bash and powershell are the defaults on their respective systems so I use those.

      I like the default settings, but every syntactic difference between fish and zsh is worse in fish. Seems like they just changed a bunch of things for no reason and without making any syntactic improvements. I'm considering learning nu shell because the syntactic differences actually have a reason to exist for improving they way it pipes and displays data

      why use nu over powershell?

        I've dabbled in powershell at work and just got the impression that everything is way too verbose. I know it has aliases lijke `iwr`, but the fact that the commands themselves have long names with capitalized letters and dashes means that it was designed from the ground up with terrible ergonomics

          Yea, writing one or two basic scriptz and using it for 1hour total doesn't really give you a good impression of it.
          The command names are a complete non-issue once you get used to tab competition and hitting ctrl+space for the menu selection.

        Powershell is nonfree gayware, also it's too perl-esqe for my tastes.

        Before some gay says it's FOSS, I'll contend that a code repo exists for it; however, much like the last meme language I looked at, no one actually packages it based on the source code. nixpkgs derivation has binary provenance. Fedora doesn't package it at all and they're very autistic about freedoms and building from source. The last time I looked at a meme lang (DartVM) I noticed it appeared the build system expected you to do Google AIDS (nonfree blobs). Some alleged Fedora packager on IQfy said he'd look into packaging dart for me, but I never saw it happen, so he probably came to the same conclusion.

        If someone can show me a pure source, no binary blob, build of powershell, I will kneel.

      have a short period where I use it every couple months I but its always a slog to read up on the syntax.

      It's actually really easy to make improvements over Bash because Bash fricking sucks. The only problem is that b***hes like you cry because it's not the same as Bash (bad).

        ok, what kind of syntactic improvement can you come up with?

          Iterating through an array for one.

          for x in $array
          echo $x
          end

          for x in ${array[@]}; do
          echo $x
          done

            seems pretty pointless, the visual indicator is good reminder that something is an array
            that would also break semantics when referring to arrays elsewhere
            echo $array would then have to print each array element

    I'm using it right now, since it's quite comfy. But, I still write my scripts in Bash, since Bash is so damn universal, and it's easy enough to switch between the two.

      >>I like the default settings,
      this is basically the reason I use fish. I just grew weary of maintaining my zsh config. fish isn't exactly the way I would like but it's close enough and I don't have to do anything with it to make it close enough.

    Fish default behavior is great.
    Still writing all my scripts as bash scripts tho.

    It has nice ability to load tons of vendor-shipped shell completions. I use it for a while, but it's not POSIX compliant, so can't be used for scripts and stuff, only as interactive shell. Now I use nu, but same as before - who da hell will write scripts in nu lang, it's obscure, you can't just ship it to other people.

    I use it as interactive shell. It's nice and works by default except when there are shitty scripts that modify the path

    I started using it about a week ago and think it's neat. The autocompletion etc. is much better than what you get in Bash or ZSH by default.

    For anything bigger than a simple for-loop I'm going to use a real programming language like Babashka or Python anyway, so I don't really mind that it's not posix compatible. The fish commands are much easier to memorize than Bash's arcane syntax.

    I like it very much and use it all the time on all my systems.
    Way more comfy to use and starts much faster than zsh with even the most minimum of plugins.

      this simply isn't true. the only time when ZSH is going to start slowly if you install some garbage like oh-my-zsh

        Unfortunately, it is the reality.
        I install 2-3 plugins to emulate fish (search and navigation) without oh-my-zsh and suddenly I lose a couple letters every time I open a terminal due to how long zsh takes to actually launch.
