Is fisherman compatible with oh-my-fish themes and plugins?


Where does fisherman put stuff?

The configuration and cache are saved to ~/.config/fisherman and ~/.cache/fisherman respectively.

The fishfile and plugins are saved to ~/.config/fish by default.

To customize this location:

set -U fish_path ~/my/path

What is a fishfile and how do I use it?

The fishfile lists what you've installed, and it's automatically updated as you install / remove plugins.

If you prefer, you can edit this file and run fisher to install missing plugins and dependencies.

What is a plugin?

A plugin is:

  1. a directory with one or more .fish functions either at the root level of the project or inside a functions directory

  2. a theme or prompt: a fish_prompt.fish and/or fish_right_prompt.fish

  3. a snippet: one or more .fish files inside a directory named conf.d, run by fish at the start of the session

How can I list plugins as dependencies to my plugin?

Create a new fishfile at the root level of your project and write the plugin URL such as github.com/owner/repo.

Why am I receiving errors when running fisher ls-remote?

You can export the GITHUB_USER and GITHUB_TOKEN environment variables in your shell, to prevent GitHub's search API from rejecting anonymous requests:

set -x GITHUB_USER your_username
set -x GITHUB_TOKEN your_github_api_token_for_fisherman
