The Z shell (Zsh) is a Unix shell that can be used as an interactive login shell and as a command interpreter for shell scripting. Zsh is an extended Bourne shell with many improvements, including some features of Bash, ksh, and tcsh.


Paul Falstad wrote the first version of Zsh in 1990[4] while a student at Princeton University.[5] The name zsh derives from the name of Yale professor Zhong Shao (then a teaching assistant at Princeton University) — Paul Falstad regarded Shao's login-id, 'zsh', as a good name for a shell.[6][7]

Zsh was at first intended to be a subset of csh for the Commodore Amiga, but expanded far beyond that. By the time of the release of version 1.0 in 1990 the aim was to be a cross between ksh and tcsh – a powerful 'command and programming language' that is well-designed and logical (like ksh), but also built for humans (like tcsh), with all the neat features like spell checking, login/logout watching and termcap support that were 'probably too weird to make it into an AT&T product'.

Zsh is available as a separate package for Microsoft Windows as part of the UnxUtils collection of nativeWin32ports of common GNU Unix-like utilities.[8]

Setting up OBS with ‘SoundFlower’ Now that Soundflower has been set up, you will need to complete your configuration in OBS to add it to your stream.

OBS is the only streaming software you would require. In the Soundflower 'Tools' folder there is a Ruby script called 'load.rb' which will copy the built kext into the install location using sudo. This sets the owner and group correctly. When you run the 'build.rb' script it builds the project with Xcode and then runs the 'load.rb' script automatically. Soundflower obs. Soundflower is an open-source kernel extension that creates a virtual audio input and output device on MacOS. It allows you to easily route audio between applications without having to use physical audio I/O hardware. This is perfect for things like capturing audio for video recording and streaming.

In 2019, macOS Catalina adopted Zsh as the default login shell, replacing the aging GPLv2 licensed version of Bash,[9] and when Bash is run interactively on Catalina, a warning is shown by default.[10]

  1. We recently got a chance to try out the new Cult Brew Bag and it was one of the tastiest cups of coffee we’ve had in a while. By steeping the coffee in a brew bag, we have complete control over the strength. Another big plus for us: The packaging is recyclable and the brew bag itself is compostable.

In 2020, Kali Linux adopted Zsh as the default shell since 2020.4 release.[11]


Z shell's configuration utility for new users

Features include:[12]

  • Programmable command-line completion that can help the user type both options and arguments for most used commands, with out-of-the-box support for several hundred commands
  • Sharing of command history among all running shells
  • Extended file globbing allows file specification without needing to run an external program such as find
  • Improved variable/array handling
  • Editing of multi-line commands in a single buffer
  • Spelling correction and autofill of command names (and optionally arguments, assumed to be file names)
  • Various compatibility modes, e.g. Zsh can pretend to be a Bourne shell when run as /bin/sh
  • Themeable prompts, including the ability to put prompt information on the right side of the screen and have it auto-hide when typing a long command
  • Loadable modules, providing among other things: full TCP and Unix domain socket controls, an FTP client, and extended math functions.
  • The built-in where command. Works like the which command but shows all locations of the target command in the directories specified in $PATH rather than only the one that will be used.
  • Named directories. This allows the user to set up shortcuts such as ~mydir, which then behave the way ~ and ~user do.

A user community website known as 'Oh My Zsh' collects third-party plug-ins and themes for the Z shell.[13] As of 2019, their GitHub repository has over 1,350 contributors, over 250 plug-ins, and over 140 themes, of varying quality. It also comes with an auto-update tool that makes it easier to keep installed plug-ins and themes updated.[14][15]
