re: What’s your default terminal shell? And what do you love the most about it? VIEW POST


ZSH in vi-mode with Powerline. I don't use Oh my ZSH, but do make use of some of the features that are part of ZSH which it turns on by default. My biggest reason for using ZSH is the configurability it offers, including a handful of behaviors that you just can't get out of bash. Vi-mode was already the case for me back when I used bash, I've always found vi-style keybindings to be more natural for me (but I also pretty much exclusively use vim as my editor). Powerline was a recent addition, but I've loved it so far (it does a more efficient job of getting the info I want into the prompt than using a complex prompt command).
