Why zsh is better?
I use console from years and I used always only bash shell. I knew that another shells exist, but why I was supposed to use they? Why “zsh” is better? I was sure that "bash" is the best because is set as default shell in any Linux systems. I was wrong.
With "Z Shell" (zsh) can I work faster and more comfortable like never before. I use a few awesome plugins (require "oh-my-zsh") to make "zsh" even more useful and look even better.
I will not describe again the all "zsh" functions and benefits. You can found it on any another site.
I write why I use it:
- command autocomplete – you can easily choice you folder or command with TAB. Zsh autocomplete your programs attributes to.
- easy navigation – you must don’t use "cd". All navigation command "zsh" make automatic with "cd". (‘..’ Is equivalent to ‘cd..’). With "z plugin" you can navigate very fast!
- git, docker, composer etc. plugins – zsh have many plugins to make live better. Check it here!
- themes – I can use one from about 140 themes
If you never try another shell I recommend trying "zsh" shell.
You can return anytime to "bash".
