Haven't yet stumbled upon any unexpected login-issues using fish. The biggest
problem is that some commands expect you to be able to source standard shell
scripts or output. e.g from 'dircolors', 'gpg-agent' and others... luckily
most of them is just to "export <somevar>=<someval>" and can quite easy be
converted to fish syntax.

You can get to a jump start by browsing through my fish config files
repo here:

Not much in there really, but feel free to extract what you want, or just to
get an overall idea on how to solve 'source this-and-that' problems you
might encounter yourself.
Also, my way might not be the best way, but it works for me at least :)

For example, "include/" and "functions/" resolves
the problem I mentioned above with dircolors and the gpg-agent.

And, again an extra thanks to SanskritFritz.

Merry Christmas fish lovers!

@esodax: I'm trying to pick fish again while using (very little) of zsh. Can you write something more about issues when using fish as login shell? (you can reply to fish ml)

It is good to know that fish development picked up some spin again, see here:

I've actually switched from using zsh for years as my main shell to fish, I'm even using it as my login shell now.
I never managed to fully get a grip of all the stuff in zsh. However, fish I was able to mostly understand in just one day, and still it gives me the same power as zsh did.
Well, this is just about to let others know how great fish really is. :)

Good idea, package updated. Fish FTW!

Maybe python2 should be added to a optdepends array, because of the make_completions script?
Thanks for this package.
