Fuzzy Search in fish with fzf
I had installed
fzf some time ago. But default key
** for invoking
fzf did not work with fzf.
Upon searching, I came across couple of options. Of those, I chose the one with active development.
As of this writing, the last commit was 11 days ago. Very active, I would say. 😄
Installation instruction said
fisher install PatrickF1/fzf.fish but when tried, I got an error:
fisher: unknown flag or command "install"
fisher add which seemed like closest option to install.
That didn’t work either. 😞
fisher: cannot add github.com/PatrickF1/fzf.fish -- is this a valid package?
Turns out someone else also had same error. The suggestion was to upgrade
fisher upgrade also had a minor hiccup. I had to manually remove the old files installed by fisher.
fzf was ready, I’m exploring all the cool things it can do.
For starters, interactive history via
Ctrl + R is amazing.
It is better than default
Ctrl + R in bash (Reverse history search) or even what fish provides out of the box. (Auto complete commands based on history)
