Bash-like $SHELL designed for greater commandline productivity and safer shell scripts

murex is a shell, like bash / zsh / fish / etc. It follows a similar syntax to POSIX shells like Bash however supports more advanced features than you'd typically expect from a $SHELL. It aims to be similar enough to traditional shells that you can retain most of your muscle memory, while not being afraid to make breaking changes where bash-isms lead to unreadable, hard to maintain, or unsafe code. murex is designed for DevOps productivity so it isn't suited for high-performance workloads beyond what you'd typically run in Bash (eg pipelines forked as concurrent processes).

To install murex, paste this in macOS terminal after installing MacPorts

sudo port install murex
