Switching My Mac’s Terminal To ZSH

Goran Ivos

I’ve been getting the warning in Mac’s terminal for months now, telling me that the default shell is no longer bash, nagging me to switch to zsh.

I tried to ignore it for as long as possible because I’m afraid it will break or change things too much but I finally got irritated enough to make the switch. The actual switch itself is pretty straightforward, just one command to type in the terminal.
