It is open source.

not in front of a Solus computer at the moment but the only dependency seems to be zsh. Other than that the build is fairly simple. I doubt this will get added to the repo based on the fact its been a year and a half since an update although I'm not sure that that matters since it most likely just sits on top of zsh... To add to that, the last release was in 2014, while the last commit is from 2016. Extremely weird. Can track this issue here

That is correct @tristan957, it just sits on top of zsh.

I have built this out, but I removed my comment from a while ago because I was not sure if it was going to be put through.

@RaspberryRye you have the eopkg for it?

@fendor maybe you can get in contact with @RaspberryRye and he can give you a copy of it which you can then install locally.

@fendor I would be more then happy to send you over the eopkg.

@RaspberryRye Sure, how do you want to send it?

Hey @fendor,

Sorry for getting back to you so late, got busy with other stuff.

I could up load the eopkg to GitHub and give you the link.

I have been contacted by the developer on github. There was just a new release yesterday. Now we wait to see if it gets included or not

Can someone please explain to the uninitiated what this does that other shells don't?

@DataDrake It combines the best features of zsh (bash history and aliases) with the beautiful UX of fish. It's really just changing the default appearance of zsh and adds a few features OOTB (syntax highlighting and a better way to view bash history).

It's basically Zsh with better defaults, @DataDrake.

Fish shell is known for being awesome out of the box with auto-completion, syntax highlighting, themes and what-not already pre-configured.
The only problem with Fish is that it's not POSIX/bash compatible and changes a bunch of syntax which makes it pretty unusable.

For example, in Fish: && gets changed to ; and. Imagine doing sudo eopkg up; and sudo eopkg it example Makes Fish a real pain.

It's useful and a ton quicker to setup than Zsh alone and just combines the good from fish into Zsh.

I'm extremely hesitant to accept a shell that only gets updated when the dev wakes up from 6 month hibernation periods. The lack of active development is a sign that this may not be around in a couple years.

I concur. I love the idea of Fizsh and think it has a ton of potential to combine the good of Fish and Zsh into something amazing but I’m not sure how much this project is lacking with developer activity.
