Using a custom shell (zsh)


#1

Hi! I’m a huge fan of zsh. Is it possible to use it by default in in Cloud9 container terminals?
Changing the login shell for the ubuntu user does not seem to help.


#2

Hi
cloud9 doesn’t use login shell but launches bash from tmux https://github.com/c9/core/blob/master/node_modules/vfs-local/localfs.js#L1820
You can start zsh from bashrc, but there were reports about scrolling not working well with zsh.


#3

Yes, scrolling the terminal doesn’t work for me in my SSH workspace that uses ohmyZSH but I just exit do my scrolled and then zsh back in.


#4

Hi!, I use the same technique, exit, do scrolled and then zsh back, but I lost the history of ZSH.
How do you deal with that? thanx


#5

@ofmendez In my new SSH workspace I don’t have scrolling at all anymore :skull:


#6

Any movement here? ZSH still not working even after the AWS buy.

Any update on this ?
