biozsh — the z in bioinformatics
The command line is the usual working environment in bioinformatics. This repository gathers scripts and tweaks to improve the handling of biological data and programs when using the zsh. This includes extensions to the famous z shell autocompletion system which outshines bash.
biozsh should be able to be installed using one of the ZSH package managers of your choice. See these links for detailed installation instructions.
I still have to figure out, how to do a proper installation. But this should work for now:
git clone https://github.com/kloetzl/biozsh cd biozsh make install-dev
Restarting the shell will give you access to the new features. If you want to manually source the
biozsh.zsh script, note that you have to do so with the absolute path.
Depending on your ZSH style, using the auto completion is as simple as pressing TAB. Here is what it looks like for me if I press TAB, just after typing
Blastn supports a variety of different output format. Now you don't have to remember their weird codes anymore, just press TAB!
Checkout the completions directory for all supported tools.
