I grow under the sun. When I am not writing code, I am either drinking wine or drinking tea (with these little cups). Cheese is my bread and tracking everything in Emacs is my cheese.
P.S. d12frosted means dice with 12 sides from the Chessex™ frosted series. I used to play. Just a little bit.
During migration to
nix for package and system management in environment#11,
I’ve encountered an issue with
PATH variable containing seemingly correct
entries, but in incorrect order when using
$HOME/.nix-profile/bin is put in the end. Since I am very new to
ecosystem (using it for few days), it was not clear what is causing this issue
fish itself), so I
decided to investigate. While it turned out to be a known issue, I learned a
little bit in the process and found a local fix, which I am sharing in the end

Have you ever been in a situation when you called
git fetch, stared at the
screen for several seconds and then switched to the browser to read something

I was doing something important, no?’. Rings the bell, doesn’t it?
I have always been inspired by the people who use (or at least can use) terminal for any kind of activity that is associated with programming. Sure, every task has its own set of instruments to be solved with. But there are instruments that you can count on in almost any situation. That’s why I spend so much time in the terminal.
For a long time (like a year and a half) I was using
zsh beefed with
oh-my-zsh. While it was providing me a lot of crucial functionality, I wasn’t
very happy about
oh-my-zsh, so when someone mentioned
fish in comments to
Use Haskell for shell scripting thread on Reddit, I decided to give it a try

In this article I am going to share my thoughts after using
fish. But keep in
mind that this is not a tutorial to
fish (mostly because it already has a good
written one, which covers most important aspects of day-to-day
fish, but you
might also want to read full documentation to get the full grasp).
Exploring new stuff is fun. So even if you are totally happy with your setup, I
highly advice you to take a look at
