You will be then taken through the installation set up


The plugin and aliases set up is really easy too with Fig!

Current Plugins I Use

  • zsh-autosuggestions
  • git-open
  • ohmyzsh
  • zsh-syntax-highlighting
  • spaceship-prompt

Misc points

Having tried other terminals like Hype, I tend to stick to standard terminal; it’s a lot faster and easier to deal with, so it’s nice to finally come across something like Fig that works out the box very easily
