Moving Between Directory History in Fish Shell

Fish shell is supreme! Finally a shell whose config doesn’t look like a Perl hack. Too bad it doesn’t get much publicity.

Here’s an awesome feature. In zsh, I’d be used to doing stuff like

dirs -v
cd -2

to move between previous directories. In fish, there’s a cd — to move to the previous history but much more powerfully, you can just do alt-left/right arrow to move through your entire directory history without typing anything.

It’s boss!

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
