    Since I'm using zsh, I ran the following commands to create aliases:

    Project mention: [Question] What are the best plugins for zsh ? | /r/zsh | 2023-05-28

    Have a look at awesome Zsh. You can find pretty much everything there. If that’s too much, searching GitHub labels is a good way to find plugins by popularity (aka: number of stars).

    Project mention: I think Linux might be the superior platform for gaming at this point. | /r/linux_gaming | 2023-06-18

    Is the command line really so scary? I enjoy using it from time-to-time (usually not for gaming related reasons) and I like things like Prezto to make it look pretty.

  • zinit

    🌻 Flexible and fast ZSH plugin manager (by zdharma-continuum)

    Project mention: fish-shell: the user-friendly command-line shell | | 2023-08-26

    Am i the only one who feels fish is not worth it despite of hype? Don't get me wrong. I think that fish is really good shell.


    After adding the following plugins to zsh(before you chime in, it's just adding these lines,not anything configuring much. also it auto bootstraps on new install), I found out that fish is no where near configured zsh.

    1) (plugin manager)






    7) any good shell prompt generator like

    For example, I use fzf integration for tab completion. Fish's fzf integration is nowhere as good as that of zsh's. Also, posix compat and almost bash compat of zsh is plus.

    I acknowledge that zsh isn't perfect shell either and I have tried and failed few times in past to switch to fish. If you provide me compelling reason/s to switch to fish, I am all ears.

    Project mention: zsh doesn't output anything when there's an segfault | /r/zsh | 2023-06-20

    /u/unuing You might check out that discussion, or file a new bug. If you just want to try swapping out zplug, I personally like zcomet when using a plugin manager outside of a dotfiles manager.

    Project mention: Oh-my-zsh without oh-my-zsh? | /r/zsh | 2023-05-11

    You can use a plugin manager that supports oh-my-zsh plugins and libraries such as zinit (my personal favorite). You can also take a look at my personal project zunder-zsh.
