const when = line.substring(0, semicolonIndex).split(':')[1].trim();
return `- cmd: ${command}\n when: ${when}`;
} catch (e) {
// Probably a continuation of the previous line.
// I don't care about these
}
};
const fishHistory = zshHistoryLines.map(line => transformLine(line)).join('\n');
fs.writeFileSync(expandHomeDir('~/.config/fish/fish_history'), fishHistory, 'utf8');
