Switching to Zsh (the new macOS default shell)

matthias profile image Matthias ðŸĪ– ãƒŧ1 min read

With the release of macOS Catalina, the Z shell became the standard macOS shell.

I used Bash for many years, but I am willing to switch to zsh.
I already installed Oh My Zsh and added some aliases I used before.

Do you have any good advices or snippets which might be helpful?
