Oh My Fish!
Developing on a shell should be a pleasure. Our goal is to help developers that don't want to spend time configuring their own computer to spend time doing what they want.
With the power of our community, we take the already awesome fish shell to another level by creating simple-to-use plugins and themes.
Oh-my-fish is a user-friendly framework for managing your fish-shell configuration. It includes optional plugins (brew, git, rails, python, node, etc) and themes.
Oh-my-fish is built for recent versions of the fish shell, namely "fish 2.0".
curl -L https://github.com/bpinto/oh-my-fish/raw/master/tools/install.sh | sh
If you want to install it manually, keep reading.
Enabling a new plugin or theme is as easy as it should be. Open your fish configuration file
~/.config/fish/config.fish and specify the theme and the plugins you want to use.
As an example, to enable rails and git plugins add this line
set fish_plugins git rails
to your configuration file.
If you have many functions which go well together, you can create custom plugin in the
directory and add to it as many functions as you want.
If you would like to override the functionality of a plugin distributed with oh-my-fish,
create a plugin of the same name in the
custom/plugins/ directory and it will be loaded
instead of the one shipped with oh-my-fish.
If you just want to override any of the default behavior or add some environment variables,
just add a new file (ending in .load) into the
Send us your theme!
I'm hoping to collect a bunch of themes for our command prompts. You can see existing ones in the themes directory.
Integrating oh-my-fish themes with fish_config
Fish provides fish_config, a web portal where you can modify some configurations, including changing your fish_prompt. By default, fish_config comes with a series of prepackaged themes. Running copy_prompts.fish installed with oh-my-fish will integrate oh-my-fish's provided themes with fish_config and allow you to choose a custom theme as your prompt.
Switching to fish
If you wish to use fish as your default shell, use the following command:
grep -q '^/usr/local/bin/fish$' /etc/shells; or echo '/usr/local/bin/fish' | sudo tee -a /etc/shells chsh -s /usr/local/bin/fish
chsh will prompt you for your password, and change your default shell.
To switch your default shell back, you can run:
chsh -s /bin/bash
Substitute /bin/bash with /bin/tcsh or /bin/zsh as appropriate.
- Clone the repository
git clone git://github.com/bpinto/oh-my-fish.git ~/.oh-my-fish
- Create a new fish config by copying the fish template we've provided.
cp ~/.oh-my-fish/templates/config.fish ~/.config/fish/config.fish
- Start / restart fish (just open a new terminal)
rm -rf ~/.oh-my-fish
