Also, it seems that Luke is not updating this gist and the voidrice version is being maintained instead. To compare you can vimdiff 2 process substitutions curling the raw URLs of each like so:

vimdiff <(curl -sL "https://gist.github.com/LukeSmithxyz/e62f26e55ea8b0ed41a65912fbebbe52/raw/zshrc") \
        <(curl -sL "https://github.com/LukeSmithxyz/voidrice/raw/master/.config/zsh/.zshrc")

NOTE

A process substitution is shell syntactic sugar that creates temporary FIFOs (ie /dev/fd/11) for a process. These can be used where a file is expected. Learn it. Love it.

I ended up going with fish + starship.rs

Thanks @RichardBronosky , for anyone else attempting to install this on MacOS, the last line where you install the syntax highlighting did not work for me out of the box. You will need to also install the syntax highlighting plugin from https://github.com/zdharma/fast-syntax-highlighting and then correctly reference your install location in the last line of the .zshrc file.

Also, the autosuggestions were the killer feature of Fish for me, here is good alternative for zsh: https://github.com/zsh-users/zsh-autosuggestions/blob/master/INSTALL.md It works well but it doesn't seem to query the global history as Fish does.

You inspired me to do a rangercd:

rangercd () {
    tmp="$(mktemp)"
    ranger --choosedir="$tmp" "$@"
    if [ -f "$tmp" ]; then
        dir="$(cat "$tmp")"
        rm -f "$tmp"
        [ --datadir "$dir" ] && [ "$dir" != "$(pwd)" ] && cd "$dir"                                               
    fi
}

so you just have to switch
last-dir-path with --choosedir and -d with --datadir

another plugin you could very appreciate is zsh-autosuggestions or fzf (fuzzy finder for ZSH)

also: does lf have an imagepreview?

I am a bit late to reply lol but lf actually does have image preview check out lfimg. It works flawless and I prefer it over ranger.

@RichardBronosky (and @Arjentix and @zaid-g if you're still following),

Taken from https://vim.fandom.com/wiki/Change_cursor_shape_in_different_modes#For_Terminal_on_macOS adding this to my ~/.vim/vimrc gave me the same behavior in vim as in zsh.

None of these worked for me, but what finally got the cursor to reset was:

:silent !echo -ne "\e[2 q"

Did you come up with the name "zoomer" shell? That is hilarious
