Fish at Last!

11th Apr 2008 | Tags: osx

Somehow, the last update of MacPorts has let me install Fish cleanly, rather than obtusely blowing up as it has in the past.

I highly recommend trying it out: port selfupdate followed by port install fish should do the trick.

If you want to use it as your default shell, you’ll need to sudo echo /opt/local/bin/fish >> /etc/shells so chsh will treat it as an approved shell.
