z-fish is my fork of z (http://github.com/rupa/z) that works with the fish shell.

Tab completion is not working. If you can fix this that would be great, but I don't use it enough to bother.

z's original readme with modified install instructions follows.

z is the new j

First, there was j: http://github.com/rupa/j/.

Then, there was j2: http://github.com/rupa/j2/, with some python added. Made it easier to experiment with some stuff I'd been thinking about.

Now there's this, where I rewrote j2 back in bash. I like it. Sorry about all the repos , but it kind of grew this way.

The biggest change from j is the use of 'frecency' for weighting. Directories that have low ranking but were accessed recently, will quickly have higher rank.

The -r switch preserves the old behavior.

maintains a jump-list of the directories you actually use


* put something like this in your config.fish:

. /path/to/z.fish

* cd around for a while to build up the db



* z foo # goes to most frecent dir matching foo

* z foo bar # goes to most frecent dir matching foo and bar

* z -r foo # goes to highest ranked dir matching foo

* z -t foo # goes to most recently accessed dir matching foo

* z -l foo # list all dirs matching foo (by frecency)
