AMA: I spent 3 years creating a new bash-compatible shell called Oil


Here are a couple posts that may spawn some further questions.

FAQ, 2019 Edition – I wrote this yesterday for the AMA

Why Create a New Unix Shell? (2018)

Questions could be about: technical issues when writing a shell, why I'm creating a new shell, surprising things I learned about shells, related Unix tools, programming style, etc.

I'm looking for people to try the shell and give feedback! It takes about 30 seconds to install.
