What shell do you guys use? - JerrySpringerIsMyDad - 30-07-2014

I usually end up using bash. Is there and good reason I shouldn't?


RE: What shell do you guys use? - smlb - 30-07-2014

I personally use zsh, loving some nice features that this shell offers (good auto-completion with tabbing), oh-my-zsh or better grml config.


RE: What shell do you guys use? - eye - 30-07-2014

zsh with oh-my-zsh.


RE: What shell do you guys use? - kirby - 30-07-2014

Bash here, never seen the need for anything else. I must admit that the fish shell looks cool though.


RE: What shell do you guys use? - dcli - 30-07-2014

I used bash forever and decided to use zsh with oh-my-zsh the other day. It's pretty much the same for me, I can't say it's really any faster. The colors for oh-my-zsh don't suit my white terminal tho


RE: What shell do you guys use? - casscode - 31-07-2014

zsh for the completion, bash or scripting


RE: What shell do you guys use? - shtols - 31-07-2014

Client-shell-of-choice still is bash. On servers: A wide variety, except zsh.

That shell looks neat! I want to try other ones, so that'll be on the list.
I've also heard good things about mksh, does anyone use that here?

You should ask ypnose for that. Check out his blog also, its quitte Nice : http://blog.ypnose.org

bash had that bug tho. I use hush its very lightweight.


RE: What shell do you guys use? - xero - 10-10-2014

i use zsh. it seems like there's a completion system for everything. i also like the simple setup for thinks like keybindings, prompts, path expansions, extended glob searches, and it's own internal function system for thinks like git.

Fish (http://fishshell.com/)!

It's really cool. Offers a lot of improvements over bash like zsh but without the hours spent configuring it.


RE: What shell do you guys use? - b4dtR1p - 12-10-2014

i use zsh and bash for scripting on linux, bsd and osx

there isn't by any means anything wrong with bash. buuuut, zsh is a bit more flexible, is entirely compatable with bash, and weighs less.


RE: What shell do you guys use? - dcat - 13-10-2014

zsh for looking pretty, mksh for everything else.


RE: What shell do you guys use? - venam - 13-10-2014

zsh on my personal machines, bash on servers or anything that comes by default on the OS.


RE: What shell do you guys use? - z3bra - 13-10-2014

Mostly bash for interactive use, but I (try) to write POSIX shell scripts (/bin/sh on my server is aliased to /bin/busybox, so ash by default)


RE: What shell do you guys use? - nrmc.dubz - 13-10-2014

I like to give users zsh for interactive stuff, for root-affairs always mksh.
With scripts it depends on the needs. Should it be portable -> /bin/sh. Should it be fancy -> zsh. In any other case I use bash for scripting, because it's easy to handle.


RE: What shell do you guys use? - delucks - 17-10-2014

I use zsh with zsh-syntax-highlighting when I want to look good. oh-my-zsh is too heavy for me.


RE: What shell do you guys use? - sodaphish - 29-10-2014

`which sh`
/bin/bash

I personally use zsh, but came across someone using fish on http://usesthis.com and I looked it up. It looks good, how are you liking it?


RE: What shell do you guys use? - rwzy - 07-11-2014

Fish's design philosophy is absolutely horrendous.


RE: What shell do you guys use? - kaludis - 21-01-2015

zsh everywhere.


RE: What shell do you guys use? - cadav3rous - 23-04-2017

normal user: zsh / root: tcsh


RE: What shell do you guys use? - Mafia - 23-04-2017

ksh, because openbsd.


RE: What shell do you guys use? - rocx - 23-04-2017

bash(1) because I'm to lazy to chsh(1) to anything else.


RE: What shell do you guys use? - Tmplt - 23-04-2017

zsh(1) because of zim.


RE: What shell do you guys use? - jkl - 23-04-2017

ksh93 everywhere because of POSIX.


RE: What shell do you guys use? - robotchaos - 23-04-2017

rc, i love its syntax and it is my initials


RE: What shell do you guys use? - r4ndom - 24-04-2017

i'm using bash. previously i used zsh with zim, which was handy, but for my needs, to much.
