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!
