Automating New OSX Setup #1.5 - A curveball

twitter logo github logo ・1 min read

Up until now, I've been using BASH as my default shell in OSX, and just learned today that with the next version of MacOS, Apple is changing the default shell to zsh.

This is going to mean porting my stuff from BashIt over to Oh-My-Zsh and also porting over everything in my dotfiles.

Anybody have any advice on moving to zsh?


I'm now second-guessing switching to zsh? Why? Basically every system I'd ever connect to is going to have bash as it's default shell. Maybe I'd be better off grabbing the latest bash release and installing it myself.

This is the list of shells shipping with Mojave. I imagine it will be the same even if they change the default.
