Hello fellow fish fans! I am ridiculous_fish, and I come bearing lungfuls of new life!
Over the past year, I and my partner Siteshwar have been working on a fish fork. We've been modernizing fish's codebase, while adding some truly compelling features and improving performance. We've been living on this fork for months, and we think it's _awesome_. Compared to stock fish, our branch is noticeably faster and easier to maintain, and its new features have ruined me for all other shells. bash now tastes like cardboard. Our fork is now in Open Beta, and we'd like to invite you to try it out! We are interested in feedback and bug reports. We'd also like to start a discussion about our changes and whether/how to incorporate them into fish trunk (which we would very much like to do). Our changes are transformative and impact nearly every aspect of fish's code base, so it is not to be undertaken lightly. But our changes are also very compelling from the perspectives of both users and maintainers, and our months of living-on have given us a lot of confidence in them. Our branch is not only the best fish ever made; we think it's the best POSIX command line shell, period. Here's how to get it! Main page: http://ridiculousfish.com/shell/ Open beta page: http://ridiculousfish.com/shell/beta.html Release notes: http://ridiculousfish.com/shell/release_notes.html Gitorious page: https://gitorious.org/~ridiculousfish/fish-shell/fishfish The relevant git branch is fish_fish. Please share your thoughts, reactions, rants, raves, and bug reports on this list. If all goes well, we'll announce the Open Beta more widely in the upcoming week. A few teaser improvements (for a longer list, see the Release Notes above): - Autosuggestions (think URL fields in browsers) - 256 color support - Web-based configuration - Syntax highlighting is now multithreaded, so it doesn't cause stuttering typing on slow disks / filesystems - Overall performance is way better - It's all in (sane) C++. No more string_buffer_t, array_list_t, or hash_table_t, and no more halloc! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Live Security Virtual Conference Exclusive live event will cover all the ways today's security and threat landscape has changed and how IT managers can respond.
