Nushell

A new type of shell.
Welcome to the Nushell project.
The goal of this project is to take the Unix philosophy of shells, where pipes connect simple commands together, and bring it to the modern style of development.

Pre-built binaries

Further information

For a quick start we recommend you to read our book. It contains all the information you need for setting up Nushell and start working with it.

If you've already gone through Nu Book and you still want to have more examples of what Nu is capable off, you can take a look in the cookbook.

We have active discussions on Discord and Twitter, where you can get help from developers and other Nu users if you run into problems. Furthermore you can bring in your own ideas and visions for evolving Nu and work with us together on building this modern shell.
