In the case of Linux, the shell is like the heart of the entire system. The shell enables all the commands to run. A number of system apps rely on the shell scripts to work. In a word, without the shell, a Linux system is hardly Linux at all.

There are a number of available shells for the Linux platform, for example, ZSH and C Shell etc. Today, let’s party with the Fish! Fish shell is another popular alternative shell for Bash, the classic Linux shell.

The Fish shell comes up with a really cool look and coloring. Moreover, you get an auto-completion feature. This part remembers the commands you ran in the past and suggests them as you type your command.
